THE DIRTY ARMY: Hey Nik, have you seen Scooby Snack’s Instagram? She’s started “copyrighting” her photos. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. It’s embarrassing that she thinks she has a “brand” worth protecting—no one is gagging to steal the identity of a prostitute in a cheap wig who doesn’t tip—and that merely writing the word copyright constitutes some sort of legal protection. You were right in your book excerpt: the illusion of importance has eclipsed the need to create any actual importance. She might’ve actually made something of her life if she put half as much effort into a legit career as she does into those god awful nails and endless emojicons.
Scooby Snack is old news. Kina, next time copyright with your real name.- nik
