I Jumped the Shark on My Pony. It Is My Pony’s Only Trick.
Lindy West is a writer and performer based in Seattle, Washington. After seven years as a film reviewer and editor for The Stranger (Seattle’s alternative newsweekly), she signed on as a Staff Writer/full-time moral scold at Jezebel, where she attempts to make social justice palatable by disguising it as entertainment. She specializes in angry, (hopefully) hilarious polemics on racism, sexism, and human bodies. Her work has also appeared in Slate, GQ, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, the New York Daily News, Vulture, Gawker, Deadspin, Cracked, msnbc, and some other places she can't remember right now. She is available for your speaking engagement. She is currently at work on her next book. As soon as this episode of Chopped is over.

If you have a couple of months to kill and you love all-caps, swears, and boner jokes, you can browse Lindy West's complete Stranger archive HERE and her Jezebel archive HERE. Otherwise, a sampling of her work (from the Stranger and other places) is available on the WORK page.
