Humorous Tumblr Post Imagines Where Books Come From

So well, today I learned that books are adorable when they're first hatched. With that being said you've got to hand it to the imaginative minds of Tumblr to take us to creative places we never saw coming...like, where on earth books actually come from? On top of that, Neil Gaiman backs the theory, so it might as well be recognized as totally legit. For some more gold from Tumblr check out this post about how relationships evolve over time

Creative Posts From Internet Poets

Was "reading more" one of your failed New Year's resolutions? Well, we're going to let you in on a little secret: you don't have to buy books to indulge in the creativity of wordsmiths. Turns out that you can consume clever witticisms all over the internet. You just have to know where to look. Fortunately, the subreddit r/brandnewsentence makes that mission a little easier. It's a veritable hub of quirky writing that's been harvested from Twitter, Tumblr, and even the dreaded hellscape that is Facebook. We've put together some of their finest examples of creative writing, but there's loads more where these came from. Hell, they may even inspire you to get a little more funky with your own posts. Go crazy. We're here for a good time, not a boring time.

Funny memes, tweets, and tumblr posts collected from Reddit, r/brandnewsentence | Molly Hodgdon @Manglewood His kiss slow, but firm and unyielding like an old man backing his Lincoln Town OCar over handicapped parking sign. | Dylan Sprouse @dylansprouse Happy two year anniversary. Here's us looking more alike with each passing year until single beast with four arms and four legs runs at top speed 50mph and screams like baboon at nearby travelers trespassing into our woods many more!

Woman's Riotous Twitter Thread About Lawyer Dueling Anonymous Letter Writer Is Lethal Level Flirting

Before there was Netflix and Chill, there was Fencing or Frenching. This young woman's ludicrous tale is one hell of a medieval-esque emotional rollercoaster. Apparently you can find the original script that inspired the eventual Twitter thread, over here.

This Hilarious Twitter Thread Roasting The Way Male Authors Describe Women

Thank you, Literary Twitter for starting our new favorite hashtag challenge. The fun stems from the #OwnVoices hashtag, which addresses the voices of marginalized communities. The hashtag naturally had its critcs; among them was a male author that insisted he was living proof that men are capable of penning realistic female characters. After Gwen C. Katz  shared some super-cringey passages of his proof, the challenge was born. 

Women on Twitter quickly began parodying the passages, describing their most coveted features in hilarious and painfully flowery fashion. Many of these tweets show greater writing chops than we've seen in some books. While the fetishization of female characters is certainly getting old, we could read these farcical tweets all day.

An SNL Writer Is Replying To Trump's Tweets Like They're Texts And It's Hilarious

SNL writer Josh Patten is trolling the President hard. The writer and comedian announced his new project "Responding To Trump Tweets Like They Were Texts" on July 16th, and we can't get enough of it. Patten's "text" responses are brief and colloquial, providing contrast that helps highlight just how over the top and exclamatory the President's tweets can be. Patten has declined to comment on the project, but we're definitely hoping to see more of these "text exchanges" in the future.

J.K. Rowling, in her never ending quest to become everyones "cool aunt" on Twitter, has offered up some inspiration in the form of rejection letters.  


The pictured letters are both tiny and a little blurry but if you put on your reading glasses you might see that one is a polite and short dismissal and the other is apologetic and offers some helpful tips after saying "No, thank you." 

This was part of a discussion where Rowling also answered questions and, as usual, offered a response to a fan that was both supportive and wise. 



See, just like everyone else, J.K. Rowling got rejected a few times before becoming an international sensation. Take away her fame and she still gets rejected every now and then.
