I love MIB in almost everything I see him in. Wet Hot American Summer, Stella, and even Sierra Mist commercials. I know he's a funny writer, but I think maybe he should stick to writing funny scripts. Each one of these essays seemed to adhere to some sort of unseen flash-fiction rule. I estimate them to be about 1000 words each, which make the essays feel either too short or too long; I can't decide which. The endings felt rushed and tended to wrap up the same way each time. Bummer.
