If you thought zombies were blasphemous to Pride and Prejudice, beloved classic of romance literature, check out this hilarious Twitter parody by Mad over at Under the Mad Hat.

Here are some snippets:

MrsB: A Mr Bingley–worth 50,000 followers a year–has joined Twitter! He’s brought a friend, Mr Darcy–worth 100,000 followers a year! Pls RT

LizzieB: @JaneB If I could love a man who would love me enough to take me for a mere 50 followers, I should be well pleased…

LizzieB: @JaneB …but such a man wouldn’t be sensible & I could never love a man who was out of his twits. LOL

CubicleSurfer: Does anyone know what #Bingley is and why it’s suddenly the no. 1 trending topic?

BoredInTheBurbs: @CubicleSurfer I think #Bingley’s a he and I’m pretty sure he just died.

Darcy: @LizzyB Pride—where there is a real superiority of mind, pride will be always under good regulation.

LizzyB: @Darcy Which one of your last 3 tweets would you like me to nominate for http://tweetingtoohard.com/ ? ‘Cause I think they’re all winners.

It’s absolute gold.
