Allie McFee's Internet Tendency

Mike O'D recently sent a list proposal to the good folks at McSweeney's and the fuckers summarily rejected it. I love me some McSwy's, but I can't say I'm not disappointed in their lack of comedic perspicacity here. I mean, there's no way this is less funny than some of their recent stuff. Ah well. Sometimes the rejection is its own compliment.
