On angry-face's fifth birthday, it seems appropriate to get slightly meta.
Every so often, someone comments to point out indignantly that the things I bemoan are trivial, absurd, and very definitely First World Problems. As if I didn't know.
First off, those are the problems I have, so those are my complaints. At least I'm not dishonest.
Second, this is a humor blog, and Problems of the Not First World variety are not very amusing. "Why do I have malaria?" "Why doesn't my family get enough to eat?" "Why does all the humanitarian aid get cut off by the warlords?" See? Not hilarious.
So yes, I know, and no, I don't care.
On a slightly different note, it also seems appropriate at this juncture to acknowledge Dr. Ford, without whom this blog would not exist. Little did he think that his little scroll of stuff I hate (cheap beer, domestic cheeses, something that might be "puppies," "hippies," or "happiness") would have such a long life. Thanks, Ford.
