Crisis-Aversion Index Cards

I will never not love McSweeney’s. Here’s another excerpt why:


So, you didn’t get a seat on the subway. There’s no reason to cry, little dude! Look around! You see all those beautiful people standing? You’re one of them! Look how tall you seem next to those seated around you! Why don’t you tuck your blanket into your bag now, OK? It’s OK to have a security blanket, but let’s pull it out only when we really need it, all right? There you go, bud! Just think, the next time you get a seat on the subway, it’s gonna be awesome!

  1. This crushed me, personally:

    “Dear Barack Obama,

    I have a great idea for you: you should set up a special phone, a special place just for kids to call the president if they find things that are dangerous and can affect people, like someone smoking. This would be a special place for kids to talk to Barack Obama and let him know what’s going on…

    Impractical, but awesome.
