The Orange Buzz

The Sincerest Form of Flattery!

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Well, then I’m blushing today with all this doggone flattery. Why?

A sour imitation

Because someone made an App called “Half-Lemon Pessimisms!” It’s a direct play off of my App, in that it’s a photo of a lemon where the orange should be, and you shake it to bring up depressing statements. I thought it might be funny, but my designer checked into it for me and it’s yawnfully unoriginal stuff. Oh well. In fact, the one review that was on there the other day said only this:

Review title: “Lame.”

Review: “lame.”

So overall, the App’s a lemon—it’s loaded with advertisements in the creator’s attempt to collect ad revenue from it. But I had to give it props for choosing my App to imitate!

Still, isn’t this a sign that someone’s feeling a little too bitter about life? I suppose they could use the Half-Orange Optimisms App more than ever. So thanks Half-Lemon, I got a kick out of it. 🙂
