Lemony Snicket Now an Agony Aunt on Twitter?!

Lemony Snicket now giving love advice via Twitter?  I think I may have died and just gone to heaven.

Here's a sample:

Q: "I have a crush on a work superior who I probably am not allowed to go out with. What should I do?" #DHhelpsU 
A: Say to him, “Your Holiness, this is awkward, but...”

If you haven't read Daniel Handler's Lemony Snicket series, run--don't walk--to the nearest bookstore and buy the series immediately.  Or so I advise.  

As the preceding snippet of dialogue suggests, the novels are wicked in the extreme.

In the very best sense of that word, you understand.

The graphic is Jim Carrey playing the villainous Count Olaf in the film version of the Lemony Snicket series.
