B-KAWS?! What the hell.... not this shit again

When Apologies to Banksy did it, I was all hmmm.... and now we have Neccessaries Toy Foundation producing a KAWS "parody" figure. *le sigh*

Here's the copy, complete with ALL CAPS as it was presented to us:

B-KAWZ
APPROPRIATING THE APPROPRIATOR
(THIS IS A PARODY, IT IS ONLY A PARODY, DO NOT ADJUST YOUR RATIONALE)

B-KAWZ there isn't enough shit at Comicon already
B-KAWZ you are not a very discerning toy collector
B-KAWZ absolutely everyone bastardizes everyone else
B-KAWZ art imitating art is still art, geddit?

Call it what you will, is it a blatant rip-off or a noble tribute?
We at Necessaries Toy Foundation consider it a homage
to two successful and very respected artists.

It is also commentary and parody.

Is it an original idea? We think it is, but only in an esoteric sense.
In fact, it is a very original idea if you are a lateral thinker.

Appropriator? Perpetrator? Instigator?
It is what it is, and I yam what I yam.

B-KAWZ is a metaphor du jour. Merely this and nothing more . . .
