Twitter is vandalizing your most innocent memories.

Lifelong readers love to reminisce about the books they grew up on, but as hardened, cynical adults, they’re also willing to face up to the gritty realities of life not often featured in children’s literature. Combine the two impulses and you’ve got the Twitter hashtag #RuinAChildrensBook, which originated on a #HashtagWars segment of the comedic game show @midnight

It is, as you’ll see, a rather self-explanatory (and Photoshop-friendly) concept.

It’s a sure bet that, in addition to spoiling an untold number of kids’ classics, this joke also ruined some poor librarian’s day. Is not even Judy Blume sacred?
