The PowerPoint Anthology of Literature
October 18, 2002 1:11 PM   Subscribe

The PowerPoint Anthology of Literature from Daniel Radosh, formerly of Modern Humorist. This collection is a little uneven, but the ones I think are lame you'll probably like, and vice versa. The first slide alone is pure genius.

The 'lola' pie chart, where the name slices are functions of location, is particularly funny to me.

That is hysterical. Perfect for end-of-Friday giggles. Wish he'd done The Scarlet Letter while he was at it, or Tess of the D'Urbervilles - would have saved me so much time in high school...

Situation, not location.

Hamlet and Lolita were the only ones I've actually read, but the Lolita one in particular was hilarious.

Yeah, I wish he would've done more of 'em. Catcher in the Rye, say, or 1984 would really lend themselves to this treatment.

This is one of my favourite memes.

I was practically on the floor over "Hope is the thing with feathers." Good stuff, but a little slim.

Does anyone remember reading a piece (in the New Yorker?) about Powerpoint where:

1) It is revealed that a school of thought in the Pentagon is that, to defeat Iraq, you need only train the Republican Guard in Powerpoint.

2) A corporate manager confesses that when she disciplined her teenage daughters with a family meeting, presented with Powerpoint, they tearfully promised they would never let the family down again?

Follow my link, young Jedi. There is much Powerpoint goodness linked in the comments, and I think davidmsc's one is what you're thinking of.

i_am_joe's_spleen: thanks for the mini-bump.

I don't know what Maxim's doing in there, but it seems to me that could be a slide used in an editorial meeting.
