Which one of those 2 ladies is Robinson Crusoe? The other would have to be Friday.

It automatically becomes translated when read

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good island, must be in want of a native named Friday.

I can’t wait for the Charlotte Bronte version of Dracula.

Maybe this is a book about someone reading another book. Bookception!

On top of that . . .
The Chinese title literally reads “PRIDE and PREJUDICE”

There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart, except hunting wild goats with a sharpened stick.

@jjhitt. Just as with a good woman, wild goats may also be eaten raw.

It is neither Robinson Crusoe, nor Pride and Prejudice.

It is that book about the famous football coach – Warren Pearce.

“It happen’d one Day about Noon going towards my Boat, I was exceedingly surpriz’d with the Print of a Woman’s naked Foot on the Shore.”

One lady is Friday. The other is April.
SO! If I did Friday on Tuesday, could I do April in March?

There once was a lady called Crusoe,
Who you could have when she gave you a clue so,
But her invite was handy,
When I was totally randy,
And I gladly would do so do so do so do so do so do so do so do so do so.
