During Sunday's Super Bowl, the entertainment wasn't solely coming from the game. Twitter tag #JaneAustenAtTheSuperBowl had literature fans enthralled.

According to libraryjournal.com, "Probably the biggest hit (at least among the literati set) at last night's championship game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers was singer-songwriter Roseanne Cash, who channeled the voice of Jane Austen on Twitter under the hashtag meme #JaneAustenAtTheSuperBowl."

Cash's tweets garnered plenty of responses and some of them are pure literary comic genius.

Here are some of our favorites. Come up with one of your own? Let us know in the comments!
