First, I'll attempt to unscramble this garble. You let me know if I'm correct:

"Why are you doing it? Because look, it's hair is the same as theLwerd's hair in the picture, and you just put a Grievous face as a mask, right?"

If this is right, let me know, it could very well determine the entire course of this debate. Anyway, on to my points:

1) In all fairness, the picture of Huey of the Boondocks does not belong to theLwerd, rather, it is copyrighted by Aaron McGruder, the original artist. Here is the website for further proof:
http://www.theboondockstv.com...
So in reality, I am not stealing from theLwerd, but a much more famous person with lawyers. I'm actually running quite a personal risk to myself.

2) I did not put Grievous as a mask, rather, that would be the hair. If you had seen my previous profile picture (and if you can't tell by the name) Grievous is my 'trademark' image. So actually, Huey's hair and eyes are masking me.

3) As to why, I simply thought it would be fun. I plan to do it with other debaters profile pictures whom I respect on this site, in the hopes that maybe some of their 'essence', if you will, may rub off on me. One can use all the assistance they can get on an event such as the tournament that I and so many others are engaged in.

So if these answer your queries, the only question that remains now is how we shall attempt to waste the time provided by the other two rounds, unless you actually plan to argue on this.

no i didn't mean that, yes i know it's not theLwerd pict. but i mean you use the picture that theLwerd are using and the one that you say "Huey's hair and eyes are masking me" doesn't make any sense! how the eye and hair became a mask?

1)Ahh the folly of man: assumption. You have not looked at all of the facts, and assume that theLwerd is the first and only person on this site to have used Huey. Rather, she is the second on both counts. Huey, who is now jatl2111, was the first user to use Huey. He is the 14th debate this site has had since it started up, and can be viewed on page 286. Also, when I first signed up I was originally going to be user name 'Huey' and planned to use the same Huey picture until I found out it was already taken, thus, I stuck with my regular screen name. So really, any Huey inspiration may not come from her at all, it could even be said she is taking it from me, although I in truth do not think this. However, it is coincidental that we both are using the picture in some fashion.

2) Oxford's definition of mask is: noun 1 a covering for all or part of the face, worn as a disguise, for protection or hygiene, or for theatrical effect. 2 a respirator used to filter inhaled air or to supply gas for inhalation. 3 a likeness of a person's face moulded or sculpted in clay or wax. 4 a face pack

We'll use definition number 1 for all intents and purposes. My original picture is concept Grievous, then I photo shopped Huey's eyes and hair ONTO it, thus, they covered my "all or part of the face". Therefore, we can logically conclude that the sections of Huey I carved out are my mask.

So while we can say that theLwerd and my pictures have certain likenesses, we cannot say that it has definitely derived from her. It could have com from user name Huey, or simply from my love for McGruder's 'The Boondocks'.

If run-ons_maker's position is that I cropped, copied, and pasted parts of a Huey picture onto one of General Grievous, then he is correct, I can't deny that. However, if his position is that I am using theLwerds picture and then cropped, copied, and pasted it onto a Grievous one then he is wrong, as I've given sufficient evidence to show that is not property of theLwerd's, nor does it necessarily mean that it was inspired by her. I'll let the voters decide on that count. I've changed my picture back to the one that we both are referring to, and you can decide. Also, one a personal note to run-ons_maker, I never suspected your integrity for a second. Darth_Grievous_42 out.
