The Stupid, It Burns by Plognark The Stupid, It Burns by Plognark
This is a quick sketch I did a while back when I was feeling really god damn aggravated one day. I threw it up on my blog, and shared it with a few people I know on forums, and it sort of took off from there.

People kept begging me to set up a cafepress shop for it, so I did!

Anyway, if you want to buy a shirt of this, it's right here: [link]
I've got a creative commons license on it, so feel free to use it in your own blogs or whatever, but it would be wicked cool if you could just throw a link up to my site ([link]) and/or the cafepress store where you use it.

Welp, thanks for lookin'!

I found this image in the comments of a science article (very fitting) and was happy to be able to trace it back to the artist.  The internet makes me feel like this on a daily basis.

are you really the original artist of this? if so, fantastic idea i use it frequently on car forums :D [link] this is a thread about a guy who has been posting the most clearly misunderstood idea about VTECs in hondas. its a 41 page monument to his burning stupidity.

sincerely thanks,

Yep, somehow this image really took on a life of its own. I think someone spread it on some of the 4chan boards first, then it spread out from there and I next saw it pop up six months later on a few astronomy/science blogs that I follow. Now it's everywhere!

I put a creative commons license on it, so I don't mind if people use it as long as they don't try to sell it somehow. :)

The biggest surprise to me was when it showed up on the badastronomy blog, and then later on Pharyngula; I read bad astronomy every week, so that was actually really cool to see it there :)

The image has a creative commons license attached to it, so if you wanted to get it as a tattoo I wouldn't have a problem with that. Just keep in mind that there's nothing stopping someone else from getting it too :)
