Writer Plagiarizes Himself

NEW YORK – An unknown writer is suing himself for plagiarism.

“I found an old story I’d written, and then I changed the title, and then I resubmitted it for publication.”

The discovery of self plagiarism was a shock. He turned himself in immediately.

“I couldn’t believe I’d do that to another writer, let alone myself. It’s deplorable.”

Family members expressed concern for the scandal.

“He worked hard on that story. And to think he would just change the title and claim it as his own?”

News of the situation forced the magazine publisher to pull the story from consideration until the lawsuit is cleared up.
