Fun With Dick and Jane (Eyre)


Oh, see. Oh, see Jane. Funny, funny Jane.

Run, Jane, run.

Oh, wait. You can’t. Locked in room with uncle’s ghost.

(This was going to make me millions, like that guy who rode Pride and Prejudice Zombies all the way to the bank.)

Go, go, go. Go to school. Oh see, see Jane at school.

Uh-oh! Typhus epidemic.

(But it turns out I didn't actually read Jane Eyre, so I know dick about Jane. It also turns out that the SparkNotes are really confusing. What happens to a dream deferred again? Does it explode? Or does it stop blogging and watch Top Chef on Hulu?)

  2. Heh heh - I saw the title and I thought it was about the rediculous amount of sexual tension in Jane Eyre - I'm an admitted VicLit nerd, but really - you CANNOT ignore the subtexts! I'm a Rochester-hata (bring on the hate mail, I know it's coming from you "true" Vic Lit fans!) but seriously - it IS worth reading to get an idea of how un-stuffy the Victorians were! And poor, poor Bertha!!!

  6. I never read Jane Eyre and probably won't ever. I prefer Modernist literature. The Victorians were way too wordy.

    And thanks for the link to the Jane Austen Fight Club video Dorn, funniest thing ever!

  9. @Dorn: No, I haven't! Can't wait.
    @Miss Welcome: Thanks.
    @Bonnie: I love VicLit nerds.
    @Kristi Lynne: Yay!
    @Julie: Nice!
    @Tricia: I KNOW.
    @Tsaritsa: They made us read Jane Eyre in 8th grade. What a waste.
    @Single Dad: Thank you!
    @K: The dream deferred reference was that I was deferring my dream of writing Fun With Dick and Jane (Eyre)because I hadn't read the book. It was a joke. A bit random I guess, but I'm not confusing Langston Hughes and Charlotte Bronte.

  10. Freaking awesome. And I love the Jane Austen Fight Club...I think you could definitely make millions with that and with your Jane Eyre Running story. =)

  11. Ok, unrelated to this post (which is funn-E), your recap of PR over at HuffPo is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Not wrong in the sense of, "wrong." But wrong in this sense: I am sitting in the dark while my toddler sleeps. I am stifling coughs. I am shifting carefully in my chair.

    And then you make me laugh. Like 3 times.

    So, so wrong.
