Sure, I know it’s not Friday, so why the Folly? This seems too cute an idea to ignore, given the quiet this week’s quiet Storm. Besides, this idea is funner. I can’t wait to see the list we cobble.
The game combines anagrams with bogus book titles. Each title you make has to follow the pattern: X of the Y, where Y is a jumble of X. Sounds like algebra? Relax. It’s mental floss. A chance to contrive some hokey books, giving each anagram title a straight subtitle to seal the gag.
Did I say hokey? Maybe I meant Hockey:
GIRTH OF THE RIGHT – The Rise and Growth of Joe Hockey
BOREDOM OF THE BEDROOM – How Tantric Sex Can Ease the 7-Year Itch
PRESENT OF THE SERPENT – A Short History of Apples
HATRED OF THE THREAD – Naturism For Dummies
TENDERISING OF THE INGREDIENTS – Food Processing Made Easy
