Bookish Fun: Slaughterhouse 90210

There are few things I'm obsessed with as much as books - but trashy TV comes close. Which is why I love Slaughterhouse 90210 - it combines two of my favourite things and it's GENIUS. Featuring screencaps of random shows captioned with quotes from literature, it's totally hilarious. Here are some of my faves:

“A real friendship ought to introduce each person to unexpected weirdness in the other.”  — Jaron Lanier, You Are Not a Gadget: A Manifesto
“A real friendship ought to introduce each person to unexpected weirdness in the other.”

“She has many rare and charming qualities, but Sobriety is not one of them.” — Jane Austen, Juvenilia
“She has many rare and charming qualities, but Sobriety is not one of them.”
— Jane Austen, Juvenilia
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”  — Arthur C. Clarke, Profiles of the Future
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

“I would always rather be happy than dignified.”  — Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
