Copycat, copycat

Over on that so popular social network on the internet called Facebook, there are a whole bunch of people who have a regular habit of copying posts from other people who have said something on the order of “if you agree, copy and paste or re-post or other such things. It’s gotten to the point that some people do it so often, I wonder if they have any original thoughts of their own. Are they nothing but drones? How is copy and paste any kind of real interaction? DUH! Come on people, interact in a real way with something you actually think of all on your own, Quit being a copycat. I remember as a child that when someone copied from another, we would taunt that person by saying, well actually it was more like yelling but not quite, “Copycat, copycat.”

By the way, do you know there are other types of copycats? Well, there are. For example, there is the Copycat Geography Game from National Geographic Kids. There is also Copycat Recipes from The Recipe Link.

For links to a whole bunch of other copycats, click on over to the Wikipedia Copycat page.

Oh, what the heck! Let’s end this blog entry on a high note. Or, perhaps I should phrase that as; Let’s end this Roland’s Ramblings with a song. Click on over to Copycat – Copycat (Belgium) courtesy of YouTube.

    Gee, I was thinking of doing a blog entry on this very topic, but now I can’t, because you’d call me a Copycat!
