The cast of the irresistibly quotable cult classic 'The Princess Bride' is reuniting for what might be the most exciting political fundraiser in 2020.

Did You Notice This ‘Little Women’ Blunder?

The tale of on-screen modernity in a period setting is age-old. We all remember the infamous coffee cup in Game of Thrones, right? No matter how many times we see it, it never loses entertainment value, and Little Women became the next victim of an editing oversight and eagle-eyed viewers. 

One such viewer (and fan), Madelyn Rancourt, took to Vine-reminiscent platform TikTok to show her findings. Her video, reaching 20.7k likes since its upload, highlights the Hydroflask that rests on a surface behind Timothée Chalamet’s Laurie. 

 

@madelynrancourtanyone else notice this? ##fyp ##foryou ##littlewomen ##hydroflask ##timothéechalamet♬ Little Women – Alexandre Desplat

Madelyn’s eye was matched with that of many twitter users, who have been sharing the viral stills, with hilarious comments, of course. 

 

Sony Pictures has not commented on the screen slip-up, but beyond “oops” what could they really say? I was not left wanting for entertainment after seeing Little Women *ahem* twice, but it really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Bookish Tweets To Brighten Your Time Indoors

How are we holding up, indoor dwellers? I know sometimes it can be dark and gloomy at times being cramped up inside all day, and it may be making you lonely – unless you fall into the group that prefers it this way, but even then, regardless of where you stand, there is nothing wrong with a little switch-up.

So, if you’ve been searching for a fresh batch of quality bookish tweets that’ll surely tickle your funny bone, and you’re in need of a good laugh, well here is the motherload of tweets that this quarantine was generous enough to give us…

 

 

Hamlet: Spoiler-Free Edition

Don’t you just hate it when someone spoils something for you – intentionally or not, especially not – for a certain story you’ve been meaning to get into but haven’t gotten around to, or one you’ve just started reading? Well, have no fear, reader of Shakespeare, because we’ve come prepared: if you happen to be reading Hamlet and don’t want to be soiled, we’re bringing you some snapshots of the story without actually spoiling it! Check ‘em out below:

You know, just to give you an idea of where the story goes…

 

When You Need To Take The Edge Off…

We’ve all had stressful days, and given everything that’s happening to us worldwide right now, that stress has been no doubt amplified, so do whatever it takes to calm yourself down, even if you have to copy ol’ Dionysus here…

Whether in a war or in a pandemic, it looks like he’s got the right idea. 

 

Worse Than Friendzoned

What can possibly be worse than a guy who you really like turns out to only like you as a friend?

Oh yeah, that’s right: as a sister… But hey, if Jane Austen’s titular Emma, as well as Cher in Clueless, could make it work, then not all hope is lost… (Good luck unthinking all that.)

 

Pics Of The Perfect Package

It’s hard to meet someone new outside your home nowadays. Maybe you should stick to someone who’s already inside almost all the time working on their creepily cool aesthetic…

As long as he doesn’t have the Coronavirus, he surely is a keeper! 

 

 

The Possibilities Are Endless!

You know, now that you’re forced to limit your time going out, with all this free time at home, you can accomplish just about anything once you put your mind to it…

Like I said, there are endless possibilities…

 

Growing Pains Throwback

As you can tell by the title of this one, it’s a bit of a continuation to a tweet I covered in a piece a long time back. If you have been keeping up with my bookish tweets pieces, see if you can remember the context that this one is nodding to…

Don’t worry Charlie and Hermione: you’ll get your moment to shine… (Also, interestingly enough: both movie adaptations HP and Perks had Emma Watson in them! To that, all I can say is: “You will find that help will always be given at Hogwarts,” “the island of misfit toys,” “to those who ask for it,” to make you feel “infinite”!)

 

Ignorance Is Bliss

Sometimes, you’re better off not knowing the truth of what actually happened. In many cases, this could spare you a whole lot of trouble…

…or even a lifetime of insanity in certain cases – at their extreme – so it’s best to not know the full story, no matter how tempting it may be to find that out. 

I know this already has seven tweets at this point, but there are a few that I couldn’t help but include in here, so first up, a bonus tweet…

 

Bonus Tweet: A Surprise Visitor

When practicing your quarantining/physical distancing, make sure you don’t answer the door to anybody, lest you catch the Coronavirus…

…no, not even if they’re a raven repeating the word “Nevermore” a dozen times! But if it’s urgent, tell the raven to bathe in a birdbath somewhere for up to thirty seconds. You never know! 

So, that’s it for the main tweets. Now, here’s one just to make you bittersweetly smile…

…and one to get you thinking of a clever title for this significant event in history…

…and one to give you an idea on how to see your friends up close and personal but not exactly in-person, courtesy of Penguin Random House…

…and finally, one to end this article: a long thread of bookish jokes I really think you’ll enjoy!
