M.C. is arguably sane, but the State has never put him where he belongs - an asylum.

Alternating between touching YA tales of solipsistic fantasy and Bizarro-fueled filth, O'Neill has little instinct for business. This is not a problem.

It's quite possible that his cheese is sliding off his cracker, but he cares for this not.
