Kareem Zarwi, manager and beverage director of Au Pied de Cochon
recently sent a very gracious email in which he thanked me for the "clear assessment" of Pied in the New Times review
. But the real reason he was writing was to let me know that he had "come across a 'review' quite similar to the one that you wrote". And sure enough, the article by "Black and White" for a site called Associated Content is plagiarism in black and white
-- except the words are amended in order to read as though English is the writers' second language. Which I think is an interesting twist that deserves its' own name: Pidgin Plagiarism.
