As mentioned in the last post, my friend Kevin has started a cartoon which is much like 'Lost Consonants', above (which deletes a consonant from a regular phrase, then illustrates the result). 'Movie Misnomers' puns on film titles to give them a new theme, and I thought we could use this post to help him think up some more, given that so many of us like wordplay (like you, Justin).
Gavin suggested "Anemone Of The State - a small, innocent, many-tentacled sea creature is targeted by the American national security agency."
And I've thought up the following:
"The Codfather" - a Daddy fish tenderly cradles lots of baby fish
"Star Warts" - celebrities showcase their facial disfigurements
"Reservoir Logs" - workers struggle to build a dam before it's too late
"Singin' In The Train" a carriage full of commuters bursts into song
"Full Metal Packet" - the Chippendales decide to wear foil thongs
"The Green Smile" - because some people never go to the dentist
But you can do better than me...
