Ahahahahahahahahahhahaha!! OMG! We're loving this NY Daily News blog post that culls some literary gems from that marvelous fount of knowledge, the Urban Dictionary. Just a taste:

Sophocles: A soap brand.

Chaucer: The end of a joint.

Cervantes: An intelligent, opinionated person who poses superior wit and charm.

Shakespeare: A method of torture used by English teachers on their students for their own sick amusement; the cause of a surge of sparknotes.com users.

Keats: One who has much intelligence, yet is reclusive and worryingly geeky. Enjoys exercising excessive control over friends and family. Wears leggings. Eats pizza only.

Bronte: A girl of her own sexiness, her own way in life. Doesn't care what people think. Very blissful and beautiful.

Zola: The act of simultaneously spamming multiple chat channels with a greeting in order to make them blink or ping.

Walt Whitman: Slang for cocaine. (Whitman was known for his long poetic lines.)

Proust: A rather impressive poke to the upper body.

There's more after the jump.
