Fifty Shades of Grey has been re-written as 50 Nerds of Grey, and it’s pretty brilliant

Let’s face it, Fifty Shades of Grey is no classic to timeless novel, contrary to what many teenage girls or bored housewives may think. But to it’s credit, it seems that just about everyone has heard of the “romance” series, making it such a great piece of work to parody.


“She said she was turned on by men who took risks . . . So he took the plastic off his iPhone screen.”

The newest parody to take on the international series of steamy books is 50 Nerds of Grey, and as you may have guessed, totally brings nerds to the front. Whether you’re a tad on the awkward side or are a full blown geek, this collection of Tweets is something we can all appreciate. While they won’t be getting you all hot and heavy…unless you have a some sort of Star Wars or Dr Who fetish, they will most definitely brighten your day. The Twitter account has over 200,000 followers, and unlike the original trilogy, is totally safe and acceptable for public viewing.

You can check out some of the Tweets below, otherwise you can find the full collection here. Thus with much aplomb, for your hurting eyes and intellectual sensibilities we give you, 50 Shades of Nerd.
