A McSweeney’s Kickstarter Testimonial

* * *

“McSweeney’s and maxipads changed my life. In 2007, I wrote an open letter about Always maxipads and it was on the Internet Tendency for six days before going viral. This is before Facebook and Twitter, mind you, so it went viral by people printing it out and mailing it to each other like animals. But the opportunity to have my work seen and appreciated for the very first time was incredible, and it kicked off my humor writing career. I will be forever indebted to McSweeney’s for that and owe them a portion of the tens of dollars I make each year from said humor writing career. Thank you thank you.”
— Wendi Aarons, frequent contributor to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency
