Oh Twitter: you never cease to amaze with ridiculous things that make me lightly chuckle.

If you’re a fan of Magical Realism — think the worlds of Kafka, Allende, Marquez and others — then there’s a bot that will serve up a hot, fresh story to you on the regular.

It is called (what else?) Magic Realism Bot. Tweeting a new story every two hours, there’s a little bit of knowledge, a little bit of magic and a lot of absurdity.

But not all are just silly — some might actually make you think.

Deep, man.
