Copycat says....


Just something to think about before buying your biker novelty souvenirs at Chopper World this year...

So, if no "laws" were broken, would you think it's ok to copy someone else's product and (along with modifying it to fit your own brand) sell said product? Even if it's legally ok, is it still something you want to support? Options are there for you to choose, but I choose not to, when it becomes apparent that someone (in the case below Harley Davidson) is blatantly (or is merely and obviously mass producing a "like" product) ripping someone else off. It's not done in ode to or in comic satire, which would actually be funny. In this case, the Mandana designed as a joke(*), now mass produced (with modifications sufficient to remain clear of patent and/or copyright infringement) to increase the weekend warrior "Skull Meter" ratings at the local Dealership Hot Dog Saturday... (insert face palm Picard image here). The most common reply is always; People have been and are ripping people off who have been ripping people off for years and years and years and years. That's just the "way" of the world.  ...but that still doesn't make it something I want to ignorantly support.

* I don't have any actual first hand knowledge of this (wink wink)

The real joke...
Available NOW at your local Dealership.


You might not agree with me. Zero fucks given.
Search out and support Originality.
Search until you die... 

"Wait. How many fucks was that again?"

...maybe a half of one. But that's a half empty one at best.

Personally i cant fucking stand it when people put doo-rags on their face. Youre not going to rob a train, youre not riding through a sandstorm, or a hoard of locusts. Yet some dudes where them hand in hand with their chaps, even on 90+ degree days. If youre really that concerned about covering your mouth, put on a fullface helmet and quit dressing up like youre about to rob a bank in Dodge City.
