In Adult, Classics, Humor, Lists, Performing Arts, Quotes, Satire by Christianna Marks0 Comments

It isn’t often that you come across an author who gets your soul so completely as Oscar Wilde understands mine. I’ve dipped into his works again and again, and I always find myself laughing at his delightfully twisted words and social commentary. It’s obvious that Oscar (yes, he and I are on a first name basis) never played by the rules, and it’s also clear that he liked to call people out with his snarky words. So next time you’re in need of something snarky to read, remember that Mr. Oscar Wilde has your back, because God knows, he’s always had mine. But don’t listen to my words, read his.
