Sweet Valley AMAZING!

I'd like to point you in the direction of this hilarious entry at The Outland Institute, which is all about Sweet Valley High. I'm sure many Australians of my generation will remember watching the TV series on Saturday morning alongside shows like Saved by the Bell (and Saved by the Bell: The New Class!), Clueless and others.


The link, however, is about the books and boy is it hilarious. Some of my favourite moments:

It appears that Sweet Valley High takes place in a world without cock.


On page 4 a body is found, drained of blood and with punctures in the neck. On page 116 Elizabeth thinks it might be a vampire! The girls aren’t exactly bright.


Being a cousin in the world of Sweet Valley High is a bit like wearing a red shirt in the original Star Trek, or being a friend of Jessica Fletcher – you really shouldn’t worry about making any long-term plans.


If only he didn’t eat people he’s probably end up running the Sweet Valley Cinemateque, or working on his one-man show about Kafka for the Sweet Valley Fringe Festival.


...and so on. AMAZING! If you are of a certain age and remember the books/series click on over and have a blast of a read, I know I sure did.


let's play!
