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:
After that weekend in the shed, I never saw her again. She wasn't looking for a relationship - she was just DIY-curious.-- Fifty Sheds of Grey (@50ShedsofGrey) August 22, 2012
Being tied to a large wooden cross in just a leather thong felt strange at first. But it certainly kept the crows away from my cabbages.-- Fifty Sheds of Grey (@50ShedsofGrey) August 14, 2012
Each firm stroke was bringing me closer and closer to that moment of relief and satisfaction. Soon my shed would be completely weatherproof.-- Fifty Sheds of Grey (@50ShedsofGrey) September 6, 2012
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.
