We have decided to celebrate today as our birthday. Exactly a year ago, God sent us to earth to… no, not to help (you have the nuns, Red Cross and Arundhati Roy to do that); we came to make you laugh, and we’re damn good at it.
Some people read us then, some liked us, some fell in love with us, some declared us success, a guy even told us to f*** off, because he thought we were being over-ambitious. But we grew and grew; we never cared about who read us and who didn’t.
What dominated, was your continuous love, affection and constructive criticism, which improved us over the months, taking us where we are today:
