Recommended for: English majors, readers of classics

Entertaining and often laugh-out-loud funny, at least for the books I've actually read or read about.

Favorite Parts -

Pride & Prejudice Page:
Elizabeth sent Happy Feelings to Mr. Darcy.
Mr. Darcy: I don't receive gifts from people who are obviously beneath me.
Elizabeth: Yes, and it must be hard to see with your head so far up your butt.
Mr. Darcy has changed his privacy settings.

James Joyce's Profile:
James Joyce is.
Mark Twain: Is...what?
Charles Dickens: Yes, why not finish your sentence? You have to think about your readers. What will they make of this?
William Faulkner: He's breaking boundaries with his status updates. He's flouting conventional wisdom!
Jane Austen: Are you sure he didn't just hit "Post" too soon?

Joyce, Faulkner, & Hemingway play Scrabulific:
Hemingway: And what the hell is a muchsias??
Joyce: You know, muchsias, or "thanks." Like muschsias grapcias.
Hemingway: That does not count.
