This week, TNB doyenne Irene Zion selects some of her favorite pieces:

ERIKA RAE is THIS close to enlightenment, if only her anus would smile!


GINA FRANGELLO doesn’t want to be an asshole, but she’s afraid she might be anyhow.


JOE DALY has a really bad trip, worse than you did, no matter what you come up with!


DAVID WILLS teaches a bevy of really, really famous children.


Rodent and JUDY PRINCE speak entirely different languages.

Wherein JESSICA ANYA BLAU explains that no one remembers that story you’re too afraid to write.


DON MITCHELL is physically fit, just not as fit as the fairy. There really is no justice.


ANGELA TUNG is not always patient with you people. She has a lot in common with Gina Frangello.


We should all be this lucky.


LENORE ZION didn’t tell her parents until more than a week after she was in this accident. Seriously. Her parents are still sputtering about it.


The Nervous Breakdown is an online culture magazine and literary community. It was founded in 2006. Our masthead can be found here.

    Aw, thanks Irene! Happy that my misadventures culminated with a silver lining.

  2. Judy Prince says:

    You are too kind, oh Queen of TNB!

    BTW, Irene, I had to check the meaning of “doyenne”—-sometimes ADMIN gets a little goofy, after all. But ADMIN was right this time; doyenne is “A woman who has the most respected or prominent broodje in a particular field”

  4. Irene Zion says:

    See now, Judy, I thought that it meant “old fart.”
    I’m so happy that it is broodje-related instead!

  5. Erika Rae says:

    Thank you for immortalizing my anus.

  6. Irene Zion says:

    Erika Rae,
    I’m showcasing your unusual nipples next.
