Best literary humor
« on: 06 Sep 2008, 07:44 »

Mostly, I just want you (who wouldn't have already) to see this.

However, on the off-chance that people around here keep track of these things, are there any other notable instances floating around of humor that has to do with literature?

Another one of my favorites is Book-A-Minute, which has been around for quite some time. There are some clunkers in there, but there are also some gems.

Hahaha, there's some great stuff there.

Dude.

About as much literate as actually literary humor, but funny's funny. Thanks!

This one had me laughing pretty hard.

Hah, that xkcd is ace.

I came across a book called Haiku U at work the other day, which is "100 great books in 17 syllables".  Some of them were pretty hilarious (there are a few excerpts on the website, but they're not really the best ones).
