Texting

These Imagined Literary Texts Are Hilarious, Part II

Reading has a way of making us believe our favorite characters are real. Sometimes we believe they breathe the same air as us, or walk the same ground. But they don’t text (besides in part one, which you can read here).

 

Some mad geniuses have somehow got into contact with some famous literary figures, though. We’ve collected a few of the funniest ones.
