Nice business model y’ got there…

…too bad if sumpthin’ was t’ ‘appen to it

Okay, look, by now we all know that FNN CNN tripped over their dongs big-time.
The web is rife with new .gifs and vids that make the WWF one pale by comparison.
CNN’s gonna run out’a cheap lawyers an’ thuggish goons, pretty soon.

Welcome to the Gif War of Ought ’17

So, the problem is… I wanna play, but I don’t know how to capture an animated .gif into my old PShop Elements (prob’ly can’t); but, hey, that doesn’t mean that one can’t get oneself on CNN’s hit list. [/I'mSpartacusMode]

There are sooo many possibilities, here; but I’ll stick to one that hasn’t been done yet, to my knowledge.

It’s like CNN has a bungee cord that’s too long, and they keep jumpin’ off the bridge then shortening it trying not to hit the water anymore… meanwhile, it’s rainin’ hard upstream.

Here’s another analogy from a GoT scene I really loved, CNN as Orson and his beetles.

Verily, I say unto you, go ye forth, brothers and sisters, onto the heathens’ internet and spectate ye amongst their arenas wherein the PShop gladiators ply their wits; and despair ye not, for thou shalt be entertained.

Okay, one more just for fun

    pretty accurate. FCNN — like C^BS — shot itself.
    …with its immense viewership of 0.0024% of the population, let’s hope someone notices…

    I not only don’t know how to capture an animated .gif, I’m not even sure how to pronounce it. (With a hard G or like the peanut butter?)

    ^ The inventor says soft-G;
    but it stands for Graphics Interface, so take your choice.

    Yeah, I tweeted a copy to CNN and KFILE and told them to go f themselves. Sadly no response
