A friend told me while listening to NPR, there was something on Twitter where people were taking movie titles and making them sound boring.
Examples: Harry Potter and The Chamber of Commerce
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington State
A Streetcar Named Mild Interest
Singing in the Shower
So I tried it. How about:
The King and Liz
The Princess Toiletries.
Pulp Orange Juice.
One Fluttered Over the Bird’s Twig
To Swat A Mockingbird
Dial M for Milktoast
The So-So Years of Our Lives
Some Like it Luke Warm
12 Discontented Men
The Wizard of Fresno
1. You try it. It’s fun!
2. Choose one of the titles you’ve created or one of the titles above and write a story, script or poem to match. It could be a spoof or whatever you want it to be.
3. Create another art form for the title. What medium will you choose?
