Credit to Dana and Zeldaqueen for providing much of the material (and scans of the graphic novel from which to yoink images); I've never actually read any of these books, so their blog things proved quite illuminating. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:33, 5 January 2012

There's one thing I've always been wondering about. Why is there an apple on the book cover? Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 22:43, 9 January 2012
Because apples are hard. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 23:06, 9 January 2012
If you leave them lying around for long enough, they can become soft, however. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 10:48, 10 January 2012
As with most things, really. Except maybe ideas. And metaphors. And bad writing. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:16, 10 January 2012
Oh, Christian symbolism. I should've guessed. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 21:29, 10 January 2012
That sort of thing probably should have had some place in the article, but I know nothing of religious symbolism. >.< 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 23:43, 10 January 2012

edit Twilight is about a girl's choice between bestiality and necrophilia

I'm shocked there's no reference to this description in the article. It would probably fit in easily. EGarrett (talk) 11:23, April 5, 2012 (UTC)

I can't speak on behalf of the original author of the article, but for myself I've heard that joke a significant number of times. The problem there is a major element of humour is surprise (and in this case status change). Using an overused joke robs it of a lot of its humour. (Even though that is a good joke.)                               Puppy's talk page11:44 05 Apr

The people who've heard will read right past it, the people who haven't will laugh. It could even be stated in a way that acknowledges its status, "As is well-known, Twilight is about an autistic girl's choice between bestiality and necrophilia," then go into further description or extend the humor. That would get the new people and set-up more for the ones who've heard it, without suggesting that it's a new line. It'd be a decent way to fill-in some of the dead-space lines in the article, since even an older joke is better than no joke at all. I'm not going to forcefully put it in or anything, unless a fully-formed line comes to me that extends the joke comes to me. EGarrett (talk) 12:08, April 5, 2012 (UTC)

This was a featured image, btw
Yeah... Re-reading the article then suggests that the joke would be out of place with the concept and narrative flow. As would the image on the right here. Funny, definitely, but suited, I don't think so.                               Puppy's talk page12:49 05 Apr
