all of my work over on the PS board gave me an idea--anyone here read McSweeneys? (http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/lists/
) I've been wanting a good idea for a "McSweeneys List," so as to be immortalized on their hilarious wesbite. Here's an example of a McSweeneys list:
Socially Awkward Situations During Which It Would Be Acceptable to Mess With Texas. BY BENJAMIN SUMLIN
Texas shows up to the party already drunk with the girlfriend nobody likes.
Texas partied too late, asks to copy homework.
Texas asks if it would be "cool to hook up with your ex."
Texas has a habit of spending more time than needed in the bathroom.
Texas bogarts the remote just before Lost.
Texas demonstrates little respect for "personal space."
Texas finds and eats the little snack cakes you've been hiding in the back of the pantry.
Texas needs you to cover rent "just until I get back on my feet, man, I swear."
Texas brings up an anecdote about his recent colonoscopy.
Here's what I was thinking:
Somewhat Dubious Law School Personal Statement Topics
1. Knows a guy who did the sister of the fellow who one walked Johnny Cochran's dog
2. The time I fell in a sewer
etc. Will it work? Will LSD be immortalized on McSweeneys? Well, only if some of y'all are freakin' hilarious, I guess.
(If I get enough funny ones to choose from, I'll post a poll to choose the best, & email it off with some moniker we choose.)
