Once upon a time, creator Daniel Errico had a vision of a new animated cartoon that would follow the story of a young woman as she navigates the trials and tribulations of her magical land on the way to meet her sweetheart — who also happens to be a woman.
Comedian Dan Wilbur knows you’re busy, which is why he created Better Book Titles, a blog — and now a book — “for people who do not have thousands of hours to read book reviews or blurbs or first sentences.” In other words, he cuts through the crap and gives you story in one condensed image.
It’s like visual CliffsNotes for those with no attention span but a serious sense of humor.
Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss
The Internet is always freaking out about something, and this week it’s a picture of an algebra textbook that features a few things that just don’t add up.
Brittaney Benesh and her 4-year-old son, Ayden, live in Vallejo, California.
We first introduced you to comedian Adam Rogowsky in April when he made ridiculously entertaining (but fake) book covers, slapped them on some hardcover books, and took to the subway to make nosy people laugh (and cringe).
And much to the delight of everyone with a sense of humor, he’s back…and, this time, he brought a friend along.

This is author Meghann Foye, who thinks women without kids should get paid leave just like moms do.
Way back in 1948, an Auckland, New Zealand woman took out Myths and Legends of Maoriland by A.W. Reed from Epsom Community Library.
There are people who love Harry Potter, and then there are people who love Harry Potter.
Author Meredith McCardle is the latter, so much so that she decided to devote a wall in her house to the first page of the Harry Potter series.
Love it or hate it, 50 Shades of Grey is one of those novels-turned-movie that everyone has heard of at some point in time, if only to make fun of someone they see trying to discreetly read the steamy stories while grabbing lunch in the office break room.
The popularity means there are also no shortage of parody accounts, but this one might just come out on top (no pun intended…okay, maybe just a little).
The Twitter account 50 Nerds of Grey reimagines the erotica with nerd-infused brilliance that is much more relatable and no less ridiculous than the original.
