SparkNotes’ Twitter – The Epitome of an English Major’s Humor

I was just casually scrolling through Twitter one day and happened to stumble upon a post from the SparkNotes’ Twitter account. For those of you who don’t know, Sparknotes is a website that provides resources to help in understanding works of literature. So, their entire Twitter account is full of English Literature jokes. As an English major, I of course found these to be hilarious. Below are 5 of my personal favorites from Sparknotes’ Twitter:

  1. 1. Pandora’s Box

    Not only is this a reference to Pandora’s box, but it’s also extremely relatable. Who hasn’t done something stupid knowing it was a bad decision? It was an easily avoidable thing that ended up unleashing all the evils unto the world. But like, what else were you expecting?

  2. 2. That’s So Fetch

    Fetch? More like the American Dream. It’s never going to happen. This is such a relatable joke told through such a great movie meme.

  3. 3. What’s Communication?

    It’s said that every Shakespearean tragedy wouldn’t exist if they had just talked their problems out. But, who doesn’t love a bit of dramatic miscommunication with deadly consequences.

  4. 4. Just a Smoothie

    Beware the Ides of March, folks. You never know if your best friend Brutus is plotting to stab you with his other bros.

  5. 5. Yes or No

    Who doesn’t love The Good Place? Hamlet is honestly a whole mess of a play. So, do we ever really know if Claudius killed Hamlet? The answer is yes or no.

These were just a few of the many tweets from SparkNotes. I definitely recommend checking out their profile if you thought any of these were funny. I’m just gonna go and scroll through their account. Don’t mind my nerdy laughter.
