Josh sent along this amusing page from McSweeney’s featuring horrible newscaster segues:
Well, folks, that last story proves yet again how emotionally damaging incest can be. Thankfully, Mr. Food is here with an artichoke-dip recipe that proves yet again how emotionally satisfying a tasty appetizer can be.
It’s funny cause it’s true, eh?
On a related note, what did you think of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by McSweeney’s editor Dave Eggers? Having enjoyed McSweeney’s brainy humour, I had high hopes for this book when I pulled it off my parents’ bookshelf (also, I was reading it on vacation in Italy, so my options for other books were limited). However, I found it ordinary and tedious, and gave up about halfway through in favour of the in flight magazine. Given the positive reviews and ongoing sales on Amazon, most would disagree with me. What did I miss?
