McSweeney's Rejects Mike Mussina's Seventh Consecutive Submission
Oh Mike Mussina, I feel your pain.
Mussina's past submissions include "Insults That Would Only Work If You Were Talking To The Leucadendron Genus Of Plants," "Sequel Titles To Famous Revolutionary War Battles," and "Companies With Hard-To-Remember 1-800 Numbers," which he admits he built around the idea of one of the examples being "8347826, Inc."
Mussina plans to send his latest rejected McSweeney's submission to the New Yorker's "Shouts & Murmurs" section, which has published three of Mussina's pieces in the past two months.
