I don't know why I've suddenly started submitting to McSweeney's all the time, but maybe it's because I miss that quick rejection of Thieves Jargon, and, believe it or not, each one I've gotten has been personal. I think this will wear off soon, as I don't sense victory coming any closer, but just to let you know, there will be at least one more rejection coming from them, hopefully soonish.
Mr. Monks didn't want the last story I sent him for the website. He said it was fun, but it didn't quite tickle his funny bone enough to let through. I also do not think the story is funny, so this is fine.
