Shit Girls Say scores book deal with Harlequin

Following in the footsteps of Justin Halpern’s Shit My Dad Says, the popular Twitter feed and YouTube series Shit Girls Say is the latest Internet meme to be turned into a book.

Created by Toronto comics Kyle Humphrey and Graydon Sheppard, the book Sh*t Girls Say will be published by Harlequin in October, almost a year after the series hit the height of its Internet popularity. By December 2011, it was nearly impossible for anyone with a Facebook or Twitter account to avoid the hundreds of knockoffs the videos spawned (including “The Inevitable Sh*t Agents and Editors Say).

Today, the Shit Girls Say Twitter feed has over a million followers and the YouTube video channel has over 28 million views, although not everyone is a fan. Last year, Humphrey and Sheppard faced accusations of misogyny and sexism for their cross-dressing comedy.
