The Shining Typewriter / Shelley Duvall Typewriter Scene meme.

About

The Shining Typewriter, also known as Shelley Duvall Typewriter Scene, is an exploitable meme that depicts a scene from Stanley Kubrick's 1980 thriller The Shining in which the character Wendy (played by American actress Shelley Duvall) discovers the results of months of Jack's (Jack Nicholson) work. Online, a screenshot of the scene has been used as an exploitable image macro since October 2018 on Facebook, Twitter / X and Imgflip, with people replacing the "All Work and No Play" text in the typewriter with humorous catchphrases, internet slang and other references or terms.
