Let’s face it, we live in a busy, busy world with a billion and one insanely interesting things beckoning for our attention.

We want to get to every movie, watch every TV show, read every book and get absorbed in every play but we simply aren’t able to, nor I suspect will we ever be able to which is where the impressively insightful and talented pairing of Caitlin Ellis and Anna Fitzpatrick come in.

Sensing perhaps how little time is allotted to us, and how often we are taunted by the unknown and the answered, these sage writers have taken it upon themselves to answer the taunting questions posed on a number of book covers with hilariously clever results on Hairpin where you can see the full scope of their inspired work.

Now go rest and be troubled by these questions no more …

(But do and check out Hairpin – anxieties about missing out eased and laughs and insight given.)

Then they generally dream of naked lady androids, or of writing midterms at the local electric school they're unprepared for, while wearing electric underwear with a Batman motif.
