A Very SparkNote’d Webstory

My original concept when was doing something like “SparkNotes from Hell.” I owe many understandings of complex and ancient knowledge to SparkNotes and unlike many of my peers, who would read them instead of the novels themselves, I always used them for background reading, especially since I never had a clue about what The Scarlett Letter was about even after spending hours upon hours of reading the boring pages because frankly, it was a horrible book that would not end. I love Shakespeare and actually used this Othello SparkNotes page once and it neglected to tell me that a strawberry is embroidered on Desdemona’s hanky (I put a cherry on the quiz), so we know it isn’t living up to its potential. Therefore, I chose to edit the Othello SparkNotes page.

But since I tried to save it as a JPG and a PNG or whatever it is and upload it to flickr, which wouldn’t recognize the files, I have given up for the time being.
