Matthew Inman Takes Photos Of $211,223 In Cash To Send To FunnyJunk & Charles Carreon
from the enjoy dept
Charles Carreon dropped his highly questionable case against Matthew Inman, IndieGoGo, the American Cancer Society and the National Wildlife Fund last week. It was pretty clear he was going to lose (and in a big, bad way). However, he claimed “victory” because, to avoid further complications, Inman made sure that all the money went directly from IndieGoGo and/or Paypal to the charities, so there was never any question of what he might do with the money. Of course, as part of his original pitch, he had promised to photograph all of the money raised as cash and send it to Funnyjunk. Inman got around the rules by taking out the same amount of money from the bank, and photographing it in a variety of different poses, some of which I’m assuming Inman won’t mind if we reproduce here.
First up, the money in a duffel bag and laid out on a table, including a shot of Inman in front of it.
Then there’s the fun stuff, including arranging the money to show a few special messages, mainly directed at Charles Carreon, even if the original focus was on FunnyJunk.
And all of it concludes with a package which is apparently being sent to Charles Carreon:
I will admit to being a bit confused about one key thing. Inman had originally promised that the photo and the drawing were to be sent to FunnyJunk. Of course, in all of this mess, it didn’t seem like FunnyJunk officially said anything, and I don’t recall FunnyJunk’s owner ever being identified. Instead, everything shifted over to being about Carreon, due to Carreon’s behavior. Remember, even though the threats were technically “from” FunnyJunk, the eventual lawsuit was from Carreon alone. We had noted that Carreon appeared to be wrong in claiming that the drawing of the mother and the bear was about his
mother, when the text of the campaign seemed clearly to be indicating the mother was “FunnyJunk’s” mother. Of course, if no one knows who FunnyJunk actually is, perhaps it’s reasonable to ship this stuff to FunnyJunk’s “lawyer,” which would be Charles Carreon.
Either way, we await Carreon’s response.
