First World Problems Contest

The First World Problems Contest was run in January 2011.

Urban Dictionary defines First World Problems as “Problems from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at.”  Example:

Aw, crap, I don’t know which 1 carat diamond encrusted platinum ring to buy!

I asked people to tell me and the Biodork readers about their FWPs.  I received 16 unique entries from 14 contributers.  In the First World Problems Poll I chose my top five favorite stories and then asked readers to vote on their favorite of the five finalists.

In the end contributor Madeline won the prize – a $25 Kiva Gift Certificate – with her FWP:

Madeline – Butt-Sushi or Panini?

Today, in the well-stocked cafeteria at my comfortable, well-paying job, someone took the sushi I wanted just seconds before I got there! It was either the butt-sushi that was left, or a panini for me!

The FWP Contest was sponsored by Biodork.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Bless you!

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out
    there. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a
    lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit,
    but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read.
    I will certainly be back.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
    whole thing without having side effect , people could take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I have had wrinkles since I was in my mid-30s. They drive me insane because I feel like I look older than I am. I decided to try Lifecell. I¡¯ve been using it for about a month and have seen little to no improvement so far, but I will continue to use it to see if it will make a difference in the future.
