Internet is a great invention. It can be a trove of jokes, all kinds of them -- cat jokes, dog chasing own tail videos and even bathroom jokes (sigh). But every once in a while, there are intelligent, satirical roasts that make up for all the guilty pleasures people indulge in. #Trumpbookreports is one of those.
Twitter users roasted Republican nominee Donald Trump after the third and final round of US presidential debate against his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton concluded on Wednesday. Tweeple picked up literary references and moulded them into hilarious comments dipped in ‘Trump reality’.
It isn’t a surprise the billionaire Republican’s seemingly favourite words -- tremendous, nasty woman and crooked -- feature often in the posts.
Trump and Clinton battled each other on Wednesday over a range of issues, including immigration, tax policies, sexual harassment accusations and terrorism in the last round of the presidential debate. The country will vote on November 8 in one of America’s most unique presidential elections.
Here are some of the reactions:

Lady McBeth? Nasty. I stood behind her. I was not impressed. Blood coming from her whatever, believe me. #TrumpBookReports— Unreliable Narrator (@thedavidseth) October 20, 2016
There are Classics too:
Menelaus is very weak. Helen of Troy would have never cheated on me. She knows I'm way better than Paris. #TrumpBookReports— Historical Trump (@HistoryDTrump) October 20, 2016

Frankly, Jesus was a disaster - I prefer saviors who don't get crucified. And Pontius Pilate was a very strong leader. #TrumpBookReports— Vishal Misra (@vishalmisra) October 20, 2016

Garden of Eden. Really nice asset. Adam should have known better than to listen to crooked Eve. Such a nasty woman. Sad! #TrumpBookReports— Heath Carter (@heathwcarter) October 20, 2016
Let me tell you this. That Elizabeth Bennett would not have been my first choice. Such a nasty woman. #TrumpBookReports— Samantha Cambridge (@MsSamCam) October 20, 2016
Scrooge, great guy, tremendous businessman. Believe me, deserves better than low-energy Cratchit. Tiny Tim, a loser. Sad!#TrumpBookReports— Joseph S. Pete (@nwi_jsp) October 20, 2016
Robin Hood? Total loser. Criminal. Should be jailed. Worst economic plan ever! Helping the poor for free? I'll prosecute. #TrumpBookReports— Public Domain Kitten (@GenXMedia) October 20, 2016
I was very impressed by the games where people were hungry. Those were the best games. #trumpbookreports— Mormon Liberals (@MormonLiberals) October 20, 2016
Trump’s controversial remark on Arizona Senator and war hero John McCain wasn’t forgotten either.
"Anne Frank, Disgusting! And she was captured. I like people who weren't captured. She's no hero." #TrumpBookReports— Marshall (@stlgotswagga) October 20, 2016
The Republican candidate had said in July: “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured? I like people who weren’t captured.”
And here’s how it all began:
