    Default Books Never Written: Fun With Puns

    I remember doing a lot of these with my dad when I was just a wee lad; you've probably heard many of them before, if not by this name. You come up with a name that is a pun (probably a bad one), and then a book title they likely would have written. Classic examples include "Under the Grandstands" by Seymour Butts, "Yellow River" by I.P. Freely, and my favorite, "50 Yards to the Outhouse" by Willie Makeit, illustrated by Betty Wont. So I challenge you to come up with your own entries in a similar vein.

    I'll start with one I came up with a few weeks back when I was thinking of names for a training exercise at work that I thought was fairly decent:

    "Medicine for the Young and Old" by Gerry Attric and his grandson Petey.

    Now, your turn!
