FML is 4 years old

Still recovering from your wild New Year’s Eve party? Come on, it’s almost the middle of January! Get a grip! Oh, and by the way, if it’s the middle of January, that means that it’s FML’s birthday, so where’s our present, huh? You forgot again. Typical.

Anyway, this time it’s our fourth birthday party. Four whole years have rushed by since FML was launched, a time in which we’ve experienced a shedload of laughter, tears, mayhem, fart jokes, bad Gangnam Style dancing and Vuvuzelas. If you think about it, things are happening right now somewhere in the world that are going to end up being published on the front page of FML in the near future. Sad but freaky, right?  It could happen to you as soon as you stop reading this sentence. Well did it? OK then, let’s carry on.

We get sent stories 24/7, not all of them get published of course, some even get banished to the eternal damnation of (check it out if you want to see what moderating weird FMLs can be like) but those that do often strike a chord with our users, either because they’ve been through a similar situation, or just because they feel so strongly about what they’ve just read.

What we’d like now is to hear from you, tell us how you found out about FML, how long you’ve been coming here and maybe what story or theme struck you the most. Or just tell us what you love about the website. Or us. Or donuts. Well, maybe not donuts, but you get the idea.

Leave us a comment under this article, it will be your birthday gift to us, but let’s make it about you, the reader, the user. As the great Frasier Crane once said, “I’m listening.”

  • Happy Fourth Birthday, FML!
    Been lurking you and loving you for years. Day after day I'd come to see the new FMLs, and there'd always be that one FML that I'd find hilarious, and then I'd see people like this ^ shmuck commenting and I'd piss myself laughing for a few minutes.
    Obviously I'd have to take a little break for a second to clean up, but after that, I was ready to go again.
    Great site, great features, great craic, as the Irish in me would say. Good enough for me to make an account, and I hate making accounts.
    Have a good one, FML and all the staff.
