Some memes just speak the truth in the strangest ways, and this one is of no exception. How many times have you opened the first page of a book and had your eyes assaulted by the artistic enormity that is the first letter of the chapter? It's a weird thought, but it's one that we can pretty much all relate to.

'What, You Egg?' Memes Roast High School English Teachers

Ah, high school. Back when we'd sit in AP English class and listen to the teacher go on about the supposed symbolism in classic works of literature for what felt like hours. Lo and behold, it's entirely possible that some writers just want to write a damn sentence that doesn't contain some sort of brilliant imagery.

All the way back in 2013, a Tumblr user pointed out the line "What, you egg?" in Shakespeare's MacBeth. Was Shakespeare trying to convey some sort of secret meaning here? It's possible, but it's more likely he just wanted to throw in a silly insult.

This Hilarious Twitter Thread Is 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.
