Chuckles abound in Created in Darkness by Troubled Americans
It’s fall. There’s no way around it. Your sandals are boxed up, your sweaters are out, and you’re rediscovering the joys of both going to work and coming home from work in the dark. Understandably, you may be a little down in the dumps.
So take a few minutes out of your otherwise routine, somewhat gloomy day and get a few laughs in with this collection of hilarity from the chucklebunches at McSweeney’s.
This volume compiles the best of the publishing house’s humour category, including a parody of the I Know What You Did Last Summer movies, a suburban candle party, Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn’s commentary on the first Lord of the Rings movie, and scenes which would have been different had the narrator been shot in the stomach.
Shorter items like lists cover bad wrestling names, failed morning TV programs, unfortunate baby names, ineffective methods for subduing a jaguar, and international equivalents for the term “cake hole”.
Oh, and when you read "Group Mobilization as a Desperate Cry for Help", try to not be drinking anything. ‘Cause it will burn when it comes out your nose. Trust me, I know.
