What If Cormac McCarthy Was on Yelp?

Laughing Squid contributing editor EDW Lynch created a satirical tribute to novelist Cormac McCarthy called “Yelping with Cormac.” The blog answers the hypothetical question: “What if Cor­mac McCarthy was on Yelp?”

So far, the blog has posted reviews of business establishments based in the West Coast including Starbucks, Victoria’s Secret, two rounds on Taco Bell,  and The Apple Store.

Here’s more from McCarthy’s three-star review of McDonald’s: “He pulled another cold french fry from the greasestained Happy Meal box. He ate it slowly. The sun rising behind him over the limestone bluffs. The barren valley and the road winding through it still in morning’s blue shadow.” (Image, via TweetinCormac)
