Horrifying thought

Someone said the other day that "Romeo and Juliet" was the "Twilight" of the day, because its plot would only appeal to young teenage girls. Now I'm haunted by the thought "Twilight" will one day be studied in English class as great literature by bored students.

...'Romeo and Juliet' was the 'Twilight' of the day, because its plot would only appeal to young teenage girls.

Actually, that's bollocks. Shaxper's plays were widely enjoyed across ages and sexes.

...also, Romeo didn't sparkle.

By the gods I hope not! And if it does become so, I pray that I will not be alive to know!

Unless your brain underwent some radical evolutionary change along with your sudden evolution of immortality, you probably wouldn't remember Twilight as being crappy by the time it became a classic... your brain would run out of room after a couple hundred years and start deleting old files.

Point of fact: R&J had Shakespeare behind it. What does Twilight have? Stephanie Myers.

I'm against the burning of books, usually. The only cases I might make exceptions for are hateful things written by fundies who claim to be Christian but whom would shame Jesus, like Fred Phelps.

Come to that... could we consider Fred Phelps a book?
