Hey, what else can we break? - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Hey, what else can we break?
*takes a break from transcribing*


You know, I can honestly say that while I still sincerely doubt I will ever be fearless enough to actually read the books (still convinced that doing so would lower my IQ to the point of no return and scared of ensuing comatose and/or hopeless illiterate state), the Twilight wank is really one of the best things ever. It's the hilarity that keeps on giving!

See Rupert Grint lost a bet with Robert Pattinson and now has to read the Twilight books. I love how it's the punishment for losing the bet.


And speaking of hilarity, have I ever mentioned to you what might be one of my favorite euphemisms ever for sex? No? It's "breaking houses," as illustrated in Growing Up Cullen:

(in discussing how in the Twilight series, supposedly, Edward the vampire stayed a virgin for a bazillion years until Bella came along)

welurklate: NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!!!!
welurklate: reading like flowers for alegeron all pissed off while rose and emmett are breaking houses



In somewhat related things, Cleolinda on a podcast (Twilight is mentioned, you know, just a bit)


And in unrelated things that are still funny, Robert Heinlein's Bizarre Fan Mail Response Letter

Hee! It's really not necessary to read the actual book - the summaries are better.

You have read Cleolinda's LJ summary of the books, right? I sporfled and vowed to never, ever read the books or see the movie. EVAR.

The sparkling! Egads!

I've also had a lovely conversation with a couple of teenaged ladies who enjoyed the books, but also agreed with me that the main character is psycho and should not be held up as an example for young ladies. In fact, the girls in question told me, very solemnly, that girls under 12 or so shouldn't read these books, because "they might not be able to tell the difference between fantasy and reality."

Aww, you don't want to go to Shiny Sparkly Vampire Land? *L*

Well, it's no the Shiny Sparkly Vampire Land so much as the Lack of Logic Freaky Teenaged Land.

(Disclaimer: I'm actually very fond of teenagers, and most of them are fabulous people. However, many of them in fiction are freakin' wackos!)

oh, of course! How do you think I heard of these books? :)

Good for them! Sense from young folks is encouraging. (Of course, that's only TWO young folks - I am sure there are others who might not be so in-touch with reality...)

LOL! I actually did read the books and they are kind of fun in a rather twisted way. The satire is more fun, though. :)

I...well...maybe I'll read...I...maybe someday. Maybe. *g*
