Animals Being Dicks celebrates it’s first birthday today! I can’t believe it’s been an entire year! If you’ve never heard the story of how the site came to be, I’ll give a quick recap. I was at home, alone. My wife and kids were out of town for the weekend. I was planning on playing L.A. Noire the whole time, but I ended up finishing it about a half hour after they left. So, I turned to 4Chan, naturally. I ended up finding a bunch of animal gifs and I had this idea. I downloaded them all and registered animalsbeingdicks.tumblr.com and posted them all up. I sent them to a few friends and we got a chuckle. Then I added the Facebook buttons and the site just blew up. My buddy, Andrew Golubock has been a tremendous help navigating all the business stuff. As for the posting, it’s still just me updating the site everyday(ish).
