When you see or hear someone else's creative work and you have a completely obvious idea for how it could have been better/funnier/etc., do you tell them or do you keep it to yourself?

Examples:

I saw a picture here on LJ of a guy showing off his new tattoo that says "Memento Mori" across his upper chest. My first reaction was that it's really cool. My second reaction was that it would have been cooler if it were reversed so he'd be able to read it whenever he looked in the mirror.

I downloaded the new Weird Al song, "Don't Download This Song". I think he missed the obvious joke of cutting it off suddenly, as if it were incomplete or corrupted.

I usually keep these ideas to myself. I wouldn't want people to not like their own stuff.
