Published: August 23, 2013
Let’s play a game. We all like games, right? The title of a novel is the first thing a potential reader sees and is sometimes the sole basis of judgment on what the novel is about. Let’s take some well-known titles and mess with them. What would you think if you picked these up? Got some of your own? Tell us.
The Impotence of Being Ernest by Oscar Wilde
Not only is he an idiot, but apparently he can’t get it up, either. None of us are surprised. All of us are thankful. Can you imagine if he had procreated? The gene pool is mucked up enough, thank you very much.
To Kill a MockingJay by Harper Lee
The final chapter of the Hunger Games. Spoiler: It doesn’t have a happy ending.

The Fat Man of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
I was under the impression they were all fat. What makes this one so special?
Whorehouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
I’m willing to bet that being held captive in a cheap whorehouse is more traumatizing than the trials of war. Or maybe not. I’m not volunteering to find out.

I don’t even have to say anything. You know what I’m getting at.
2004 by George Orwell

Hug Club by Chuck Palahniuk
The first rule of Hug Club is you don’t talk about Hug Club.
Because, let’s face it, Hug Club is fucking gay.
