You've probably seen a parody or two (or six) of Fifty Shades of Grey, the erotic novel by E.L. James. If not, allow us to violate your ocular chastity with Gilbert Gottfried's (safe for work!) rendition:

A parody we didn't see coming, however, is the Twitter feed @50ShedsOfGrey, which combines BDSM and gardening (and trips to the dentist and Jenga).

Here are some of our favorite Tweets:

Those who don't have the patience for Twitter, however, are in luck! Fifty Sheds of Grey, the book by C.T. Grey (his/her real name?), will be hitting shelves October 16, courtesy of St. Martin's Press. It will combine Grey's tongue-in-cheek Twitter feed with somewhat depressing images of sheds and tools of the G-rated variety.

Here's hoping that, like Shit My Dad Says, this meme becomes a television sitcom starring William Shatner, ruminating woefully about hoes.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
