LITERARY TREASURE HUNT

How well read are you? How often have you dreamed of being a pirate? Find out this summer by hunting for literary references in pop culture media such as movies, music, commercials, TV shows, music videos, magazines, etc. You may submit your answers to Radha via mix CD, web links, lists, collage or any other creative format you desire.   Be sure to state the pop culture source and what literary work it is referencing. Prizes to be won!

(HINT:  The Simpsons are full of them and the better read you are, the funnier the show is).
