From their hilarious lists, to spot-on social commentary, to bizarre rants, we’ve all shared something from McSweeney’s Internet Tendency at some point. Now, see it live as various contributors share some of the website’s funniest and most popular pieces from this decidedly physical, Wi-Fi-less collection

About The Best of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency:

Back in 1998, the internet was young and wild and free. Along with listservs, pornography, and listservs dedicated to pornography, there was a website that ran all its articles in the same font and within abnormally narrow margins.
This site was called McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and many dozens of people read it. Now, fifteen years later, most of those readers have died, but the Tendency still exists, publishing, every day, quasi-humor writing in the same font within the same abnormally narrow margins. The site has no ads, and no revenue prospects, and thus, every year or so, we collect some of the site’s better material and attempt to trick readers into paying for a curated, glued-together version of what is available online for free. This collection is the best and most brazen of such attempts. Please enjoy it, after you have paid for it.
