It’s August which, for school kids, means that summer vacation is almost over or already over or never over (summer vacation is a state of mind. Be the summer vacation you want to see in the world. Et cetera). But if you haven’t already finished your summer reading, it’s time to get cracking. Or you could just let Nick Offerman do it for you.

Offerman went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to explain the plots of summer reading classics: “Moby Dick. A guy named Ishmael is on a boat, they’re looking for a white whale, they find it.” “Hamlet. Hamlet dies.” A’s not guaranteed.

Now that you’ve got that out of the way, feel free to “spend the rest of your summer smoking weed and YOLOing, whatever the hell that means,” to put it in Offerman’s words.
