Nutshell Literature

Courtesy of McSweeney's: Lit 101 Class in Three Lines or Less.

My favorite:
Paradise Lost

ADAM: Paradise has arbitrary dietary restrictions?

DEVIL: They're really more like guidelines.

GOD: Incorrect.

The runner up:
The Great Gatsby

NICK: I love being rich and white.

GATSBY: Me, too, but I'd kill for the love of a woman.

DAISY: We can work with that.
