Authors spend a lot of time coming up with titles for their texts and Snide Octopus spends a lot of time messing them up. This Instagram account is dedicated to captioning books, and these descriptions are going viral for all the right reasons.

Short and witty, these subtitles usually either cut to the core of the book and brilliantly summarize it or provide an alternative title that would either insult and enrage its author or make him laugh. The unapologetic approach is perfect when it comes to everybody else, though. They catch us off guard and deliver unexpected giggles not only book geeks can enjoy. Scroll down to appreciate Snide Octopus's humorous creations and upvote your favorites.
