The Maki Times came about over a few months between 2012 and 2013. Well, maybe it started as far back as the 1990s, who can tell? Basically, Chris Maki is easily the funniest human being in Grand Rapids and probably the State of Michigan. He’s also my best friend.
After moving home for the summer of 2012, my friend Allan and I started using the hashtag #ShitMakiSays on Twitter. However, after I moved to New York City, I was pretty bored and created what would become the first Maki Times ‘meme’, seen here.
After some encouragement from a number of people, I set up the Maki Times Facebook page. The rest is history.
