McSweeney's Internet Tendency
McSweeney's Books




Description
All of the satire and comedy we publish on this website comes from complete strangers such as yourselves. While we remain small and irresponsible and afflicted with mold-borne allergies, we do our best to respond to all submissions quickly and professionally. That said, there are a number of things you can do to further enhance and streamline the experience for yourselves and for your friendly McSweeney?s Internet Tendency editorial staff, which since 2007 has been mostly run by one person out of a living room in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts.
