Comedians Who Published Books that Aren’t Memoirs

Every successful comedian is approached to write a book at some point in their career. These are the ones that didn't write the standard memoir.

Five Bookish Halloween Costumes Someone’s Gotta Try

With a week left until the big day, it’s time to iron out your costume. Here are a few based on books that break the mold a little (or a lot). But they’re mostly just straightforward to execute. Requiring things you probably have and very little explanation, try these outside the box ideas that’ll tell everyone “This is the one day a year I put down my book and leave the house.”

The card ruff makes this so simple. Red dress, red lipstick, and a pack of cards. All you really need that’s strange is a little crown, which you could probably fake with tin foil or something if you’re anything like me. Of course you have to own clothes that are colors, so you can’t be anything like me, but it seems like a good, easy play.

Who doesn’t like wordplay? Who doesn’t like sexualizing dead authors? Plus, goth thot has a nice ring to it, and he’s so distinctive. Slap on a raven and a fake mustache and everyone will know what you’ve done. The vest with no shirt horrifies me. Not for very cold climates! Don’t freeze out there for the aesthetic, even if it would be what he’d want.

Is this lazy? I don’t think so. You’ve gotta find nerd glasses, and you’ve gotta wear two shirts. Really you can do this with any superhero, except maybe Deadpool. What shirt do you have? Wonder Woman? Supergirl? Spiderman?! All set! The only thing you need is normal clothes. If you wear real glasses like me, though, I have no suggestions.

I know what you’re thinking, but you’re wrong – it’s not a pun, it’s word play. Plus, this costume has a lot of merits. Not only can you just wear your own clothes, the only element you need is the paint chips, which you can just walk in and take from anywhere that sells paint.

If you’re thinking, “does that briefcase indicate he’s a traveling salesman?” the answer is yes. That is a sexy Gregor Samsa – post transformation. It’s great, because if you know the book you might be genuinely appalled, and if you don’t you still will be! This one looks more like a cockroach than a beetle, but the choice is yours.

10 ‘Sherlock’ Memes That Will Get You Itching for That Fifth Season!

I will freely admit it: I love Benedict Cumberbatch. I am one of those people who finds him to be mega dreamy, and would love for him to come sweep me off my feet in some sort of romantic gesture. I’ve also been the butt of many jokes because of my fondness for the Sherlock actor; I’ve been sent a fair number of memes poking fun at his rather peculiar appearance. And I can admit it. He’s certainly got some interesting features, but I still think he’s the bee’s knees. 

 

I recently received one of these memes, and it got me thinking about sharing some of my favorite memes inspired by the BBC television show based around Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock. So here are ten memes for anyone who considers him or herself to be the biggest Sherlock fan on the block. Fair warning though, there might be a spoiler or two below. But honestly, it seems to take forever and a day to put out a new season of the show so I’m sure any fans out there will not have to worry about spoilers!
