About

Terry, Are You Reading a Book refers to a line of dialogue from a series of exploitables based on the "Safely Endangered" webcomic by artist Chris McCoy.[1] In the comic, a bird reads a book and uses that information to request sex from another bird. The memes, however, change the name of the book and/or the information used.

Origin

In the following panels, the bird sees another bird and says, "Hey, fancy a shag?" That day, Redditor [4] jungle-boogie posted the comic in the /r/comics subreddit, recieved more than 680 points (90% upvoted). When posted on the Safely Endangered Facebook, [3] the post (shown below) received more than 5,300 reactions, 830 shares and 300 comments in less than a month.

The bird then asks the third-panel bird if they "wanna seize the means of production?" The post (shown below, right) received more than 9,500 reactions, 1,000 shares and 580 comments.
