Getty Is Quietly Charging Bloggers For ‘Socially Awkward Penguin’ Meme

Around the spring of 2009, some nerds began adding macro text to a photo of a penguin on the Internet. According to Know Your Meme, this became what’s now known as the Socially Awkward Penguin meme — a format for sharing two-line stories on cringeworthy social encounters

You’ve probably seen it on Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit, Twitter, Imgur, Tumblr, BuzzFeed or some other Internet culture-obsessed place. And Getty Images — which owns the rights to the original penguin photo — is apparently none too happy about that. If you run a blog, you might want to be careful about posting SAP.

In a written statement, Getty confirmed to HuffPost that it has “pursued and settled certain uses” of the photo “in instances where it has been used without a license.” (Disclosure: The Huffington Post is a Getty subscriber.) One affected blog, however, wants to get the word out.

GetDigital editors explained in a post on the site this week how Getty had contacted them about a three-year-old post featuring the SAP meme. After a few written exchanges, the image service requested €785.40 (around $ 875) in license fees — about twice what the blog says it would regularly cost for a publication its size to use the image for three years. They paid the hefty sum out of court and deleted the offending images, but Getty had one more request. GetDigital said the company forbade them from talking to others about the copyright issue or else risk official legal action.

“Apparently this method is very successful,” the editors wrote, “but of course it will not work on us.” In addition to sharing their experience, the editors created a new SAP meme for anyone to use. 

Getty clarified in another written statement that, in copyright situations, it usually requests specific details of the settlement to be kept confidential. The company referred HuffPost to image licensing information available freely on its website.

With the right Google search, the original image is easy to find. “An Adelie penguin struts its stuff” reads the caption for the photo, taken by now-80-year-old George F. Mobley for National Geographic. A handy “calculate price” button sits next to it — GetDigital used this to estimate its dues — with editorial fees ranging from a few hundred U.S. dollars to thousands. 

Internet memes, though, can pose sticky copyright questions. To whom does an image that’s been recontextualized and rewritten a billion times, privately and publicly, really belong? Reuters does not seem to have pursued legal action against any of the many, many sites that posted the “McKayla Is Not Impressed” meme during the Summer 2012 Olympics. The production company behind the 2004 film “Downfall” filed a copyright claim in 2010 against all the YouTube videos repurposing a scene showing Hitler’s rage. (Many of the videos remain online.) But later, the owners of two hugely famous memes — Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat — won a lawsuit against Warner Brothers in 2013, which used their images in a video game called Scribblenauts. (The meme creators were eventually paid.)

Getty represents more than 200,000 artists who, it points out in the statement, “are entitled to be paid” just as the owner of Keyboard Cat (RIP). And, as always, we can probably blame 4chan — the cesspool of filth and depravity that created many early Internet memes, likely including SAP — for starting this whole mess. But the reality of creative copyright is often hazy — just ask Pharrell — and it stands to reason that any and all conversation around the subject should be welcomed.

Cara Delevingne Pokes Fun At That Painfully Awkward Interview

Last week, the world collectively cringed after watching Cara Delevingne’s painfully awkward interview with two tone-deaf morning show hosts while she was promoting her new film, “Paper Towns.”

After calling her the wrong name, the hosts asked Delevingne if she “needed a nap” when she looked understandably disenchanted when asked if she had read the book the film is based on.

The model-turned-actress took to Twitter to defend herself, and Paper Towns author John Green suggested that it was sexist of the hosts to ask Delevingne if she had read the book.

Now, it looks like Delevingne is ready to laugh the whole thing off, as she seemingly poked fun at the incident on Instagram on Saturday: 

I JUST FOUND THIS BOOK! ITS AWESOME!

A photo posted by Cara Delevingne (@caradelevingne) on

Got ’em!

In other Delevingne news, the 22-year-old was spotted rocking pink tresses at her girlfriend St. Vincent’s show in Montreal over the weekend. It’s probably just a wig, but she’s totally pulling it off either way.

8 Awkward Confessions From People Who Can’t Flirt To Save Their Lives

Sadly, we can’t all be as suave and debonair as dudes like Ryan Gosling. (If you’re like us, your flirting skills are better described as, “Michael Cera in pretty much every Michael Cera movie.”)

But hey, it helps to know you’re not alone. In the video above, BuzzFeed highlights some of the most awkward flirting confessions people have made on the secret-sharing app Whisper. 

 Our favorite: ”Met a really cute girl. She started to flirt with me and asked what my name was. My response? ‘I don’t know.'” 

 Yeah, that person definitely does not have Gosling-like game.

Amy Schumer Admits She Got Awkward And Starstruck Around Kimye

Amy Schumer reminded all of us in April why she deserved a spot on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list: because of her epic Kimye prank.

Remember when Schumer threw herself onto the red carpet at the Time 100 Gala in front of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian? Of course you do, but here’s a refresher just in case:

amy schumer

On “The Graham Norton Show” on Friday, the host asked Schumer whether or not the prank made West smile. Schumer confirmed that the “All Day” rapper definitely did not break his usual “sad Kanye” face. But she noted that later on, West did sort of smile at Schumer — while she was nervously lying to his wife.

The comedian told Norton that when meeting the couple during the gala itself, she became completely fake. “You know when you’re in front of a celebrity?” Schumer said. “I become such a flake, I was just saying things I don’t mean.”

“‘You and your sisters, they’re just inspiring,’ just nonsense,” the comedian recalled saying to Kardashian.

West, Schumer said, was smiling during that charade, “but as if you programmed a robot to smile.” It definitely wasn’t this kind of Kanye smile.

‘Silicon Valley’ Star Zach Woods Recounts His Painfully Awkward Audition For ‘Law & Order: SVU’

Before Zach Woods found success on “The Office” and HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” he had a ton of awful auditions, and he shared a few with HuffPost Live’s Ricky Camilleri on Monday, including the time he read for a part on “Law & Order: SVU” in which he would have played “a cognitively disabled molestation victim who would fly into rages whenever he saw doctors because a doctor had abused him.”

“And I sold it. I tried to make it so serious and give such gravity to it,” Woods said. “It was so offensive, I’m sure.”

The audition, which Woods called both “humiliating” and “mortifying,” ended with the casting director telling him it was “a hard part” and sending him away.

“It was one of the worst things that has happened, not just in my life, but in America,” Woods said.

Watch Woods recount the audition in the video above, and catch the full HuffPost Live conversation with the “Silicon Valley” actor here.

The Awkward Wedding Gift Dilemma It’s Best To Disregard

The rules of wedding etiquette are constantly changing, making it difficult for modern brides, grooms and guests to find up-to-date and correct information. That’s why we launched #MannersMondays, a series in which we ask our followers on Twitter and Facebook to submit their most burning etiquette-related questions. Then, with the help of our team of etiquette experts, we get you the right answers to your biggest Big Day dilemmas. Check out this week’s question below!

“A check someone gave us as a wedding gift bounced — what’s the proper etiquette here?” – pumper911 via Reddit

Anna Post — great-great-granddaughter of etiquette guru Emily Post and author of Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette — is here to help us answer this week’s question. Find out what she had to say below:

It’s not often I hear a new wedding question, but this is one. Wait to hear from the person who wrote the check. They will know that it bounced. Their bank will return the check to them or otherwise notify them of the insufficient funds, so it’s not as though there is any chance they will think you simply never cashed it. Once alerted, they will most likely be in touch to apologize and possibly offer to send a new check. Don’t mention any inconvenience it caused or ask what happened; simply follow their lead. If they don’t get in touch — perhaps because of embarrassment — don’t pursue it. This was a gift, not a matter for accounts payable. Write a note thanking them for attending the wedding, and perhaps “for thinking of us,” and then let it go.

You can submit your wedding etiquette questions via Facebook or tweet them to us @HuffPostWedding with the hashtag #MannersMondays.

Liam Hemsworth Says Kissing Jennifer Lawrence Was ‘Awkward’

Get ready to fall in love with Jennifer Lawrence even more.

While answering Twitter questions on “The Tonight Show,” actor Liam Hemsworth revealed that “Hunger Games” scenes where he had to kiss Lawrence were always the most awkward to shoot. The answer obviously surprised host Jimmy Fallon, so Hemsworth went on to say that Lawrence, who is one of his best friends, would eat garlic or tuna before her romantic scenes with him. And, like a good friend, she always made sure he knew about it.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Best Way To Own 10 Totally Awkward Moments

Even if you can’t admit that you’re a slightly…awkward person, you’re bound to stumble upon a few uncomfortable moments here and there.

Whether it’s as simple as an ungraceful trip (to the ground, not in economy class) or as intricate as the dance of “walk-balking,” it often seems that there’s no way to come out on top of the situation — except to just OWN it.

To help you deal with these unavoidable awkward scenarios, we’ve partnered with Sanuk, the footwear brand that makes sure you’re never uncomfortable, to bring you awesome ways to totally own the moment. You’re welcome!

1. When you wave at someone who is actually waving at the person behind you

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Your hand is already suspended in mid-air, so pretend you are royalty and grace everyone you see with a genteel wave. Confused onlookers will have no choice but to nod politely…and frantically google you once you’re out of range.

2. You trip in the most public and non-graceful way possible

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it:Immediately launch into a set of burpees. Everyone will applaud your creation of an all-terrain exercise regimen.

3. Opening the bathroom stall when someone is still — er — doing their business

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Withdraw immediately, with eyes fixed on the ground. Ask your new friend if they’d like any additional toilet paper — or a refreshment.

4. When you hug someone who was leaning in for a handshake

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Everyone needs a hug, so lean in, confident in the knowledge that you, Hugger, make life better for the poor, reserved Handshakers of the world. (If necessary, reduce intimacy with a back-pat.)

5. When you walk-balk, otherwise known as sidewalk salsa, otherwise known as the least dangerous game of Chicken ever played

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Choose a direction, build up a head of steam and refuse to compromise. Your unbridled confidence will force the other, lesser walk-balker to head the other direction.

6. When you go in for a high five and receive a fist bump in return

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Grab their fist and shake it, then continue into an elaborate best friend handjive (that only you know).

7. When no one tells you there’s food stuck in your teeth

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Shout “yum, leftovers!” to whoever was kind enough to point the food out to you.

8. Being told you’re completely mispronouncing a word

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: Say you have not, in fact, been mispronouncing the word, but have instead been using the British pronunciation. Then quickly continue the conversation so no one can question your reasoning. (Be sure to never make the same mistake again.)

9. When your parents walk in the room at the most inappropriate part of a movie

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it:Explain to your parents that you are, in fact, an adult. It’s also not your fault they possess an uncanny ability to walk in during each and every sex scene. Insinuate that they are the ones seeking out inappropriate movie moments.

10. Running into your ex when you’re clearly not looking your best

NAMEOFIMAGE

Own it: We give up. There is actually no way to own this. We advise using a nearby pole or trash can for cover, and making a quick escape.

Here’s Why Being A Disney Princess Would Be Super Awkward

There’s a reason people groom themselves with combs instead of random thingamabobs.

Because seriously, that doesn’t really sound like happily ever after for anybody.

How To Ask These 5 Awkward Wedding Planning Questions

By Laura Fredricks for Bridal Guide

Need to ask your parents for money or your ‘maids to spring for a pricey frock? Here, “ask expert” Laura Fredricks shows you how to get the answers you want to hear.

In wedding planning, as in life, there are uncomfortable topics you have to cover, so knowing the right way to ask (instead of argue) for things gives you a way to resolve any possible ripples before they become tidal waves. When the asking is out of the way, there’s more time for enjoying, celebrating and making memories. Isn’t that what your big day is supposed to about? Here, some ideas.

How to ask your guests to travel for a destination wedding:

Asking your friends to get on board with this can be difficult. Between time off from work and the cost of travel and lodgings, a lot of friends and family might find it difficult and expensive to attend. It’s ideal to give your potential guests as much notice as possible. Read our destination wedding countdown calendar.

You could start by saying, "We would love to have you help us celebrate and I know this will require extra time and money on your part. Do you think you could make a vacation around the wedding? I’m sure we can work with the hotel to get you extended nights at our wedding rates." 

How to ask for someone not to be in your bridal party:

It’s no secret that with two sets of families involved, assumptions will be made that might not necessarily mesh with your big-day plans — but what do you do when a friend assumes she’ll be part of the bigger festivities? Instead of hoping and praying your friend will understand, get in front of the conversation and say, "I would have loved to have a larger bridal party, but I hope you can support our decision to keep it small — I’m asking that this not jeopardize our friendship." Read how to choose your bridesmaids.

Reinforce how important your friend is to you and ask her to participate in another special wedding activity, emphasizing how much that would mean to you. Not everyone will understand but by asking for their support, you can feel good that you recognized a friend’s feelings and want to remain close. 

How to ask parents to help pay for some of the wedding costs:

Asking parents for money on your special day is such a sensitive issue because no one wants to deter from the happiness of getting married by focusing on money. The best way to keep the “wedding bliss” while addressing the money realities is to lead with the things you are paying for and ask for the money to cover what’s left. See the traditional wedding budget breakdown. 

For example: "Mom/Dad, you know we couldn’t be happier at this time in our lives. We’re going to have the wedding of our dreams, but we’re feeling the financial pressure between the caterers, flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses and limousines. Would it be possible for you to pay for the rehearsal dinner? We kept the wedding party to our closest friends and family and we can work with the site on the menu so that it won’t cost a fortune." 

How to ask your parents/in-laws to cut the guest list:

The hardest part in planning any wedding is keeping everyone happy, and it seems as if that’s nearly impossible when creating the guest list. Everyone has their own definition of what makes up a "short guest list". One approach may be to recognize your parents/in-laws’ excitement to share your wedding with everyone but explain to them that you’ve always envisioned your big day as something small and intimate. Read how to get your guest list under control.

In that case, you may ask, "It is wonderful that you want to invite so many friends to share in our special day but my dream has always been to keep it on the smaller side. I’m so happy we are planning this as a family — can we work together to keep the list a bit shorter? I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings but I would rather have a smaller, more intimate ceremony." 

How to ask your bridesmaids to spend some hard-earned cash:

Many bridesmaids may not have extra cash to spend, particularly if they are a student, recently out of work or have debt or other family obligations. The best thing a bride can do is ask her bridesmaids to spend a little of their own money, while helping them look for ways to save at the same time. Get solutions for the biggest bridesmaid dilemmas.

Try saying "I know all this adds up to a lot of money and the last thing I want to do is put my friends and family in financial hardship. We’re happy to help with your [select any of the following that fits into your budget] travel expenses, hair and makeup costs for the big day or the cost of your dress." 

Author, speaker and Expert on the Ask, Laura Fredricks has shared her expertise in The Wall Street Journal and other publications.

20 Awkward Breakups That Give Us Secondhand Embarrassment

Let’s face it — breakups are inherently awkward. If you’re not a big fan of death glares and uncomfortable silences, you’re better off just staying put in that relationship of yours.

‘Awkward’: Jenna Hopes For Good Karma, But Is Sadly Too Optimistic (VIDEO)

This week, Jenna continued her campaign to improve her relationships on “Awkward.” Hoping to return good karma her way, she focused her attention on the adult women in her life. Her mother was depressed after losing her job as the school nurse while Val was still angry — and working at a convenience store — after Jenna’s essay got her fired.

But Val got a second chance in a school hearing, so Lacey used all the skills she gained watching “Law & Order” to act as her lawyer. Ultimately, though, it was Sadie who came in with a true testimonial that convinced the board to give Val her job back. So would things start going Jenna’s way?

Sure it was painfully obvious where things were going when those prom tickets fell out of Mattie’s pockets, but that only meant that we were shouting warnings at Jenna throughout the closing moments of the show. We hated the idea of Jenna setting herself so high for the inevitable fall. Mattie only wanted to ask her about taking another girl to the dance.

The AV Club’s Myles McNutt thought it was one of the series’ best episodes yet. “With Jenna’s life on the upswing, she begins to imagine a perfect narrative arc in which she gets the guy, loses him as she struggles to find her true self, and then returns to win him back and have the Prom date she could have had in the first season if only they had each better understood both themselves and each other. That this isn’t to be dislocates Jenna’s point of view … and sets the stage for a finale that has become much more unstable—in the best possible way—than it was set to be when the episode began.”

Tune in to the “Awkward” season finale, Tuesday night at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.

‘Awkward’: Jenna Slips Further Into Her Bad Girl Phase, Gets Caught Smoking Pot With Collin

Is Collin a bad influence for Jenna on “Awkward“? This week, he convinced her to give marijuana a try, which seemed to quickly push her into the world of teenage pothead. Suddenly, she wanted to light up any time life started stressing her out. One of the things stressing her out was the fact that she’d lost all of her friends. In fact, other than Collin and pot, she had no one and nothing. This is not the lovable Jenna who started the series.

All teens go through experimental phases, but with each passing week this one is becoming more and more uncomfortable to watch. Jenna’s dad declared Collin a bad influence, but she had her mother on her side — at least until she betrayed her trust to sneak out and hook up with Collin. And they did hook up.

Afraid that she would lose him if she didn’t — and he did quickly start looking at his phone when she rebuffed his advances — Jenna ultimately decided to have sex with Collin. She didn’t do it out of love or because she really wanted to. She did it for an absolutely terrible reason. Clearly Collin is representing the “bad decisions” phase of her life, but how long will it last? Like everyone else in her life, we miss the old Jenna.

“Awkward” airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. EST on MTV.

Celebrate Nick Lachey’s Birthday With His Most Awkward Moments

Happy birthday Nick Lachey!

Today, the 98 Degrees lead singer turns the big 4-0. Vanessa Minnillo’s beau has much to celebrate: the Package Tour (with his group, Boyz II Men and New Kids On The Block) was a huge summer success, his wife shares the same birthday as him and their son Camden turned one in September!

Lachey has come a long way since his ’90s boy band beginnings. Need proof? We dug up some of his most awkward moments in pop history to toast his milestone. Cheers, Nick!

Nick recently became a spokesperson of sorts for the new Wendy’s Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger. He even serenaded the sandwich with help from fans’ tweets for the #PretzelLoveSongs campaign. Well okay then.

The time he and Snoop Dogg hung out at The Eden Roc Renaissance in Miami, Florida. You can just feel the weirdness, fo shizzle.

Supporting a charity is cool (in this case it was Dance to Erase MS). Wearing silly outfits and making this face with your brother is not.

Remember when ex-wife Jessica Simpson forced Nick to taste test her Dessert Treats lotion line? The fact that the product launch was nontoxic is seriously troubling. Gag.

Holy moly. The stylist who chose this 2004 magazine cover ensemble needs to be fired.

Before E! made her a household name, Kim Kardashian briefly dated Nick. He admitted the romance was probably for her fame-climbing benefit.

Lachey experimented with his own album that debuted a decade ago. It was decent and everything, but the title “SoulO” is cringeworthy.

After going solo, Nick confused himself with Justin Timberlake. Yes your dick is in a box but where’s the effort? You’re not JT’s R&B alter ego Raif. Nice try though.
