Sunday Writing Prompt #226 – What’s in a Name?

Welcome to the Sunday Writing Prompt – October 29, 2017 – What’s in a Name?

For your enjoyment, amusement and bafflement, I present you with:

10 Book titles: ACTUAL book titles – and your mission is to read the list, stop long enough from your gut splitting laughter, compose yourself, then choose a few from the list – and write:
write the “jacket blurb” – in no more than 10 sentences.

Choose no more than 3 selections – and write the “explanation” of the content – in no more than 10 well-crafted sentences for each title.

And if this doesn’t float your boat?

Pick one title and write something – flash, poem, short story. Be sure to include the actual book title in your post, lest your readers think you’ve lost your mind.

You have a week to create. Please include the tags MLMM or Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Sunday Writing Prompt in your posts. Create your links and pingbacks here and direct link to Mr. Linky.

Here are your titles:

  • People Who Don’t Know They’re Dead: How They Attach Themselves to Unsuspecting Bystanders and What to do About it
  • Living with Crazy Buttocks
  • Sorry I Ruined Your Orgy
  • Don’t Tell Mum I Work on The Rigs, She Thinks I’m a Piano Player in a Whorehouse
  • Goblinproofing One’s Chicken Coop and Other Practical Advice in Our Campaign Against the Fairy Kingdom
  • Managing a Dental Practice, The Genghis Kahn Way
  • The Pyromaniac’s Cookbook
  • The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse
  • Never Suck a Dead Man’s Hand: And Other Life (and Death) Lessons from the Front Line of Forensics
  • Sunbeams May Be Extracted from Cucumbers, But the Process is Tedious

    Love these titles!
    (oh, and my pingback doesn’t seem to be working so I’m only in the Mr. Linkys — however if you get three of them suddenly — I updated a couple times to get it to work — sorry!)

      no problems – just so you know – each pingback has to be manually approved by the prompt host or administrator, which is why it can take time for them to show up – hence we suggest an either/and/or option: create a pingback, leave your post’s URL and link with Mr. Linky (which is the only option for those who use Blogger and who don’t have a WP account)

        no worries. I also wanted you to know so if all of them showed up at once, you could reject the extras. I manually approve too so I know how that is.
