The Literary Laugh-In

The Literary Laugh-In is themed thus:

"Where one loses lbs. by reading, mocking, and eating chocolate with abandon."

For example, whilst clutching some ginger beer in one hand and foreign dark chocolate in the other, you could mingle biz & lit: come up with catchy marketing titles for classic literature:

(Lolita) "Success in lechery is an attitude - not an altitude."
(Anne of Greene Gables) "If at first you don't succeed, dye your hair again" OR
"If at first you don't succeed, Rachel Lynde will remind you."
(The Hobbit) "Small and sneaky wins the race."
(Bleak House) "If the fog don't get you, the lawyers will!'
(Les Miserables) "The Miserables: Truth in Advertising" OR
"The only author who finds poignant beauty in Paris sewers."

Try a few and see where it takes you!

  1. You made me smile! My favorites are the Hobbit and Les Miserables. Man, Victor Hugo really did have a depressingly tragic streak!
