Harvard Spoof of ‘Twilight’

Harvard University’s humor and satire magazine has a spoof of Twilight coming out entitled Nightlight. The Harvard Lampoon has been around nearly 300 years and was initially modeled on the British humor magazine Punch. They have done a parody of anything and everything. According to the description onAmazon.com:

About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.

Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.”

Probably the most famous spoof of the Harvard Lampoon was their 1969 spoof of Tolkein called Bored of the Rings.  Many writers of the magazine end up  on the sitcom writing staffs in Hollywood. Among their alums is Conan O’Brien
