Bookish Tweets Written Out In Charlotte’s Web

While I may not have a few special bonus tweets at the end of this piece, it would be very much appreciated if you could read through to the end, because again as the title suggests, these came off of Charlotte’s web, so you know they are all worthy enough to be written out by Charlotte herself in order to save Wilbur from slaughter!

Salutations, my ever-so-loyal bookish tweeters! And a very happy (belated) birthday to the ever-iconic children’s book author, E.B. White! In this long(ish)-awaited bookish tweets-piece, you will be served 14 (and only 14) bookish tweets straight from the SparkNotes watering hole – or as the title of this piece suggests, straight off of Charlotte’s web… (See what I did there? And Charlotte is clever, much like SparkNotes, so it is all too fitting!)

While I may not have a few special bonus tweets at the end of this piece, it would be very much appreciated if you could read through to the end, because again as the title suggests, these came off of Charlotte’s web, so you know they are all worthy enough to be written out by Charlotte herself in order to save Wilbur from slaughter!

So anyway, without further ado, let’s get on with the program…

 

 

 

 

The Drunk and the Restless

When you’re having a good time at a party and then it just goes downhill from there…

 

 

Don’t you just hate it when you’re taken to a secondary location to be left for dead and you don’t even know it until well after the fact?

 

Angry Bird

I wonder if any of us could imagine a classic story from the perspective of a nonhuman spectator, just watching the events unfold before them from the sidelines…

 

 

Well, that would be great, but I don’t think we could have that version of the story without some quotes that would perfectly capture –

 

 

Well, I have to say that these quotes are purely egg-cellent and nothing more!

 

A Whole New Take

Sometimes, I wonder about all the side characters in the stories we all know and love, and how their own stories never got to be told in the end. If only some of these long-gone authors were still alive so we could get a freshly-new perspective about a certain story or character…

 

 

Hmmm, so maybe that’s why we never got a long-enough story about this side character…

 

Here a Trope, There a Trope…

I know I’ve mentioned this a few times over in the past, but I should emphasize the importance of having your own squad, so that everyone outside your circle knows how each one within the circle operates so they’ll know not mess with them (if it ever comes to that). This time though, it’s The Great Gatsby edition…

 

 

Once you all specify just exactly who you are in the group, no one will even dare give you nasty looks in your direction while you’re all walking down the hall! (I say walking and not driving, because you know Daisy and her driving…)

 

Folly = Funny?

Isn’t it very impolite of people to just laugh at someone’s misfortunes like it’s a comical show to them? And it’s even worse if the one who’s suffering ends up dying, especially like this…

 

 

The nerve of some people… You know what’s even worse than that? Coming to that person’s funeral and asking their now-widowed wife for her hand in marriage. Really, it’s the lowest that one could possibly go.

 

Whimsically Archaic

When an author from long ago uses language that totally hilarious then, but now just comes off as archaic and outdated…

 

 

Well, actually, in this case, Shakespeare is that, but also a lot of useful material that we continue to use and reuse in our own works to this day! (Also, bonus points to the one who figured out the TBBT reference I made in this tweet’s title…)

 

Feel the Rain

When you help with your friend’s love life, and upon succeeding, you suddenly feel left out…

 

 

And in case you may have forgotten the full setting of this scene…

 

 

Though it is worth noting (on my part) that both Gatsby and Daisy weren’t necessarily making out but rather talking over what has happened over the last four years (five years that November, in fact), but since we only follow Nick around and so don’t exactly know the fullest extent of Gatsby and Daisy’s affair whenever Nick isn’t around, I definitely can’t say that for certain. Either way, this meme is just too fitting not to include in this tweets-piece!

 

When Will You Learn?

When you know you did something wrong, but you don’t at all feel sorry about it…

 

 

And in case anyone has anything to say about this, I think Montresor knows fully well that his actions have consequences, so save your breath.

 

The Past Is Past… Earlier Today

When you want to forget about someone/something that happened from not that far back…

 

 

Forget about her – the moment is now, so stop living in the past! As far as I can tell, both the past and the future don’t even exist…

 

The Perfect Reply

When you just don’t know what to say to someone, especially right after they’ve told you this…

 

 

Fourth option? *Faints*

 

The Stressed Man and the “C”

*Warning: This tweet might take a while for it to sink in for you, so please take your time with it, and once you do, you can read my joke right below it! 

When you try to make an acrostic poem out of your name and someone throws this at you…

 

 

Hamlet’s name may not have a C, but Charlotte’s does and it’s a capital one, so we know she – a spider – has way more chill than Hamlet ever could! (And yes, that is the reason why I chose this tweet for this tweets-piece’s featured image.)

 

Please Don’t Shoot the Messenger!

When you have to deliver bad news to your boss and you know they won’t like it, but they seem so happy right now that you’re scared to say anything to spoil this moment…

 

 

Balthazar, just be glad that your boss is Romeo and not Tybalt, because otherwise, you would want to leave Verona and never come back!

 

An Angel in Disguise

We all have our ways of communicating affection to our loved ones, so don’t shame someone’s love language just because it’s different from yours…

 

 

See? Role-playing is perfectly normal behavior for couples to have to keep things fresh and new!

 

I See Me…

Representation is everything in literature, because if you don’t see yourself in any of the books you read, readers will find it harder and harder to relate to your characters. Now, imagine this…

 

 

I mean, sure: Self-deprecating humor is all around us now (looking at you, Chandler Bing), but seriously, it was still an entirely new concept back in Shakespeare’s time, so Willy Shakes has done it again!

E.B. White, if you can hear me from beyond the grave, I hope this bookish tweets-piece has done Charlotte all the justice she deserves…
