A heartbreaking sale of stagnant genius

McSweeneys is holding an auction to help offset recent losses.

On the auction block:
  • a childlike sense of wonder in the world and a belief that amusement is the invisible force behind everything
  • a strong dislike of cruelty, parochialism, and ickiness
  • an unshakeable faith in the super-duper-extraordinary power of hyperbole
  • a lock of Susan Sontag's hair
  • A KISS pinball machine
And, of course:
  • a million hearts, huge and wide open (unless you're one of those tacky asshole reviewers)

Don't forget the secret knowledge that comic books are literature too, you know?
