Funny Bitch Friday: Regretsy

in Funny Bitch Friday

It’s not the ridiculous amount of whimsicle fuckery that’s featured on Regretsy that makes the site funny, it’s April Winchell’s (Helen Killer’s) biting satire and criticism.

She bites hard into people exploiting Etsy and it’s geniune buyers and artists by making/selling shit like this:

She also tends to buy a large amount of what she makes fun of, at the same time tearing them apart and supporting what they do. That’s some balls, y’all. She’s comfortable with people throwing the criticism right back at her, not ever taking her project so seriously that she won’t listen in return.

But in spite of the criticism she receives for making fun of some “art,” she is also notorious for sticking up for the the the Etsy artists when those who steal rear their ugly copyright infringing heads, and the Etsy management turns their hipster eyes away. Such as:

Help out, if you can, by reporting the stores that you know straight-up steal. Stealing is bullshit, but funny lasts forever. Support the cause, read the blog, and never, never apologize for your art.

Once they see you visit Regretsy at work, I’ll be surprised if you aren’t fired.

The only two blogs that I read every post for sure are Regretsy & OH, Noa. Cause they’re always always entertaining.

That was, in all honesty, probably the nicest thing I’ve ever heard. Thank you.

I love Regretsy and check it daily. She is an awesome addition. Also, thanks for calling out the thieves. I will make a point to report the stores noted.

Thanks for the support in the anti-cheating!! Regretsy is fantastic.

Regresty is hilarious. I do rather miss Homemade Hilarity though. It does infuriate me when people steal though. Just get comfortable with not being creative, you know?

Copyright infringement makes me rageful as well–just let artists be artists!
