McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: Christopher Robin Friend Requests the Residents of the Hundred Acre Wood.
"Trust me, Christopher Robin is probably relieved I did it. He’s probably sitting in his apartment right now in a pair of ripped sweatpants, eating ice cream out of a tub and re-watching The Wire and thanking his stars he doesn’t have to actually still be friends with his old, mopey pal Eeyore.” And yet still I managed to get something in my eye at the end of this.

McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: America: A Review.

McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: The Start-Up Ride Stops Here.
"All Macs will be replaced with PCs, because this is a business, not a summer camp. If Russell Crowe can play Javert, you can use MS Expression to mock up your wireframes."

McSweeney's Internet Tendency: Physical Theories as Women
"Cosmology is the girl that doesn't really date, but has lots of hot friends. Some people date cosmology just to hang out with her friends." Link of the day, no question. Funny, and just-right-enough to make it funnier.
