A hilarious tumblr blog called 'Shit Rough Drafts' imagines what first copies of famous books and screenplays might look like. From phenomenal pop culture franchises like the Hunger Games and the Harry Potter series to cinematic epics such as Jaws and Jurassic Park, the blog covers many different styles. In many instances, an editor's red penned notes are included, adding context by pointing out the absurdity in the imaginary initial ideas. This only adds to the humor as the content is truly terrible.

Shit Rough Drafts also accepts submissions from other tumblr users, which widens the scope of what works are being poked fun at. Not only are stories included, but also company and product concepts including McDonalds and candy corn.
