I would like to extend our special thanks to everyone who’s been reading the blog so far. I’m taking a trip to Puerto Rico to calm my nerves, and will be returning on March 13th full of more hate than ever before. I will do my best to blog at least once or twice while I’m there, but I can’t make any promises.
Figure 1: Refused to be my Valentine
Before I go, there’s one issue that I’ve been emailed a lot about – namely a lot of people have seen my disclaimer about this blog’s similarity to StuffWhitePeopleLike.org, and pretty much leave me alone about it. However, as most of you know, there is also a very popular site called ‘StuffEducatedBlackPeopleLike’ that people are accusing me of spinning off, since I don’t have a similar disclaimer for that site.
I’d just like to say, for the record, that if you look at the date of my first post and the date of SEBPL’s first post, you will see that my blog was actually written first – therefore, the reason I didn’t write a disclaimer for it is because I’m not a motherfucking psychic. This is not intended to discredit SEBPL (which I find to be a fairly amusing site, albeit less caustic than mine), nor is it intended to defend the originality of this blog. Rather, the intent is to get people to stop emailing me about this shit because my delete key is getting worn out.
SEBPL happens to be the more popular blog by far, maybe because it’s more focused, or maybe it more closely mirrors SWPL in subject and tone, or maybe it’s better written – I don’t know and I don’t care. For me, it’s not a friggin’ popularity contest – it’s about keeping me out of a looney bin and entertaining a few good humored folks (and enraging those who are less so) along the way.
So with that issue finally settled (I hope), thanks everyone for your kind words and comments, and for spreading the joyful hate of this website. I’ll be figuratively seeing you late next week.
