University of Oklahoma offers intersession 'Twilight' course 

Crimson and cream " now with sparkles!

The University of Oklahoma has just made winter intercession more melodramatic than ever with a class devoted to "Twilight," the franchise of books and movies that you just can't get away from, no matter how hard you try.

According to The Oklahoma Daily, English instructor Ieva Zumbake-Larchey will teach "Twilight and Youth Culture," which she says will "examine 'Twilight' as a product and a producer."

Don't go rushing to enroll, disaffected teen girls! The class already has filled its 30 slots. You'll just have to make do with your fanfic and YouTube tribute videos.

One hopes Zumbake-Larchey will assign papers on the following topics:

"Sparkles? Really?" "Wait, Subservience to Men Is a Bad Thing? OMG!" "You Realize These Are Fictional Characters, Right, People?" "Why I'll Regret That 'Lion and the Lamb' Tattoo One Day" "Even Leslie Nielsen Made a Better Vampire Than This Edward Fellow" "Real Werewolves Don't Look Like Gap Ads" "There Are Other Authors in the World Outside of Stephenie Meyer? Who Knew?"
