Hey…That’s MY Joke

December 3rd, 2010 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Some of you may be familiar with the joke in my act where I overhear someone at Disneyland asking “What time does the 3 o’clock parade start?” In fact there’s even a t-shirt of it in the Tim Babb COmedy Shop (That you can get for 25% off when you use coupon code “HOLLY” at check out before 9pm PST on 12/3/10: http://www.cafepress.com/dd/37612178)

Get that deal, baby!!

But thanks to the lovely Jennifer, I have recently learned that Disney has stolen my joke! Observe this t-shirt currently for sale at Walt Disney World:

Really Disney? I have so little and you have so much? Did you really have to Carlos Mencia my t-shirt idea? Plus you added Goofy! How can I compete with Goofy?! Now everyone will think I’m ripping YOU off instead of the other way around. You hurt me, Disney, you hurt me real bad today. A hurt that can only go away if a bunch of people go to the Tim Babb Comedy Shop and buy the ORIGINAL, Babb designed, 3 O’clock Parade Shirt! (Makes a great Christmas present…and I am shameless)

If I truly wanted to be honest, I would point out that Netcot had a 3 O’clock Parade shirt in their store before I did…but I’m not going to because
a) I was doing the joke in my act long before there even was a Netcot Podcast
b) Netcot no longer has that shirt available
c) It makes me look like a huge hypocrite

    Sorry, Tim. I wish it wasn’t so. It just occurred to me, as I was reading this blog post, that you really like Goofy, too! Ouch, Disney!

    You should go to City Hall in Main Street and demand your Disney bucks. Make sure to do your entire bit so you can prove to them that you had this idea first. Also slap a few people around. That’ll get them to respect you. Also I can understand what you’re going through. I had a friend that tried to be a stand up and someone stole his material and even got a Comedy Central special!

    Dont be sad, Tim. Think of it that you indirectly worked for Disney!
