“Destroy a Book Title with One Word” A fun game to play today!

This hilarious pun-related exercise has been around for years but thought we might have fun with it today.

Below are some Christian book titles which either have a word added, a word changed, or a letter added or changed, with bizarre results! The first nine are my own creations and the rest are ones I’ve come across in the past. Please add your own to the list in the comments. Enjoy!

God Gave Us Glue

I also had some fun with general market titles (the first seven are my own creation):

      And I think Bad Girls of the Bible College is my favorite. And I also think it’s probably about me!

    Haha, these are great. Some of them might actually make great titles for the right book. Like The Pursuit of Odd or Rich Christians in a World of Hunger Games.

    Pride & prejudice and zombies is one of those that worked.

    Alright, I’ll try a few.

    The Magic of Sinking Big (I’m imagining a documentary about the Titanic and the revenue the sinking created.)

    Snow White and the Seven Barfs.

    Shotgun Wars: Attack of the Drones.

    This is harder than it looks, but fun. So here it goes:

    Tuesdays with Morrie the Elephant.

    The Not-So-Great Gatsby

    Thanks for sharing this.
