You know how gag writers for topical shows often nick gags from (sorry, have the same ideas as) Newsbiscuit?
Why don't TV producers just officially source gags from this site?
Surely, that would encourage more writers to post up gags.
And it would save them money too. They could sack the plagiarists and buy direct. Maybe chuck the occasional bone in our/your direction by donating a fraction of the money they would be saving.
Come on you comedy fat cats. Pay for your gags, instead of stealing them.
If you did, who knows what karmic benefits you might enjoy.
People might even start taking your points about 'greedy bankers' a bit more seriously.
