Happy scrolling, and good luck with your course load. Yourcollege selfwill thank you.

'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.

Funny dank memes entitled, "What, you egg?" | bit from a shakespeare play where someone gets stabbed after calling somebody else an egg, followed by english teachers reaction depicted by kermit looking forlornly out of a window. another meme is a waffle labeled with the line from the play, with a content looking cat sitting next to it labeled as english teachers

William Carlos Williams' Plums Poem Is Our New Favorite Twitter Meme

Twitter users have been having a lot of fun this week riffing on William Carlos Williams' classic poem, "This is Just To Say." The plum-loving poem's fame, length, and rhythm have made it the target of many parodies. This latest treatment blends the three-verse poem with popular song lyrics - ranging from Linkin Park to Leonard Cohen. The results are an unexpected delight for poetry and music lovers alike. 

"I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold"

People Theorize What It Would Be Like If Dr. Seuss Wrote Erotic Novels and Now Our Childhoods are Ruined

The internet has always done a fantastic job of destroying the things we hold dear. The very existence of rule 34 has left me with little in my life that has not been utterly ruined. 

Well, along comes this Ask Reddit thread to destroy dear old Dr. Seuss. Although, some of these don't quite fit into the classic Dr. Seuss pattern there are some truly amazing (terrible?) erotic poets lurking around. 

 I promise you, after reading these you'll never again be able to read Dr. Seuss without dirty rhymes floating through your head.
