Fun With Classic Book Titles

A Tale of Two Biddies

The Catcher in the Pumpernickel

Grapes of Math

Jane’s Hair

The Plaque

Moby’s Schtick

Moby’s Dick

In Search of Lost Rhyme

Of Mice And Women

The Big Nap

The Tin Eardrum

100 Years of Solitary Confinement

The Executioner’s Bong

Lorna Doone Cookies


The Miller Needs to Floss

The Turn of the Screwdriver

The Importance of Being an Internist
