What if The Most Dangerous Game, Richard Connell’s classic short story about an eccentric aristocrat who lures men to his private island and hunts them for sport, took place in current day and the protagonist was an office bro who live-tweeted the whole ordeal? Well, as Jake Swearingen’s story for McSweeny’s Internet Tendency show, it would be one heckuva feed.
