  1. LOL!!!!I especially enjoyed "fossilized Play-Doh globules" and "John Wayne-worthy red meat residue stocking". What are Duplo bricks? Or do I not dare to ask?

  2. Sounds plausible to me. Clearly the McSweeney's editors don't have their heads up their butts often enough. An unusual reversal of problems for seeing clearly – but doesn't everyone have a few Vader heads wedged somewhere in them?
