College Humor created these new book titles for classic novels, meant to appeal to kids of the Internet age. These catchy titles are designed to be like “clickbait,” links on the Internet, which make people want to click on to read more. Classic book titles like ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ’To Kill a Mockingbird’ are respectively turned into ‘He’s Rich. He’s Hot. So What’s His F*cking Problem?’ and ’Still Think Racism Doesn’t Exist? Read This and Tell Me When Your Jaw Hits the Floor.’

Although there is some groaning about having to read these classic books in school, these hilarious titles certainly make them seem more appealing to the Millennial generation. If you had to choose between ‘Charlotte’s Web’ and ‘This Adorable Pig is Beyond Amazeballs,’ which book would you be more likely to flip open?
