McSweeney’s is preparing to publish a best-of humor edition featuring the finest jokes ever to have appeared at the McSweeney’s website or in the McSweeney’s journal. I’m in it, and so are three other Australians. You hear that, Canada? Your long dominance of the lucrative US humor market is at an end.

And all because we supported the war in Iraq.

UPDATE. On second thoughts, maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned this ...

Ha! You'll never dominate the joke market because of a fundamental that will never change: Canada *is* a joke, and therefore a natural source of comedians.

what's with the shitty html? is there only supposed to be two links (including the update, not counting the generic mcsweeneys link)?

Yeah Tim, you're a fine joke all right.
