Textification of the classics

I confess my annoyance at this is not because it's being done, but because advocates and scholars think that the gist of a book can be summed up in a text message sized abbreviation.

So, interference, can it? Let's see. Post some text messages that summarise a classic work.

Did u hear? Fanny hooked up w/ her cuz -the ordained minister! wat will gd make of the kids?
-Mansfield Park

Rhett, house has been burgled. Can u bring some chicken home for lunch? thnx
-Gone With The Wind

Post more. Let's modernise these stuffy classics into what the attention deficit youth can understand.
