The only cure for the world’s malaise is a 3-lb humor book with gilt edges, thumb cuts, and a ribbon marker.

It’s a great undertaking to raise a humor website from infancy to full-fledged adulthood, but with the right editors, impeccable taste, and a dire political landscape, your site will enjoy years of relevance and comic validation. Join us as we revisit the first twenty-one years of McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, from our bright-eyed and bewildered early stages to our world-weary and bewildered recent days.

Keep Scrolling Till You Feel Something is a coming-of-age celebration of the pioneering website, featuring brand-new pieces and classics by some of today’s best humor writers, like Ellie Kemper, Wendy Molyneux, Jesse Eisenberg, Tim Carvell, Karen Chee, Colin Nissan, Megan Amram, John Moe, and many more.

—Judd Apatow

“Buy this book so that on the night before you become a blood bag on the Fury Road, you’ll remember that once we laughed. Oh, how McSweeney’s made us laugh.”
