The game: Pick a blog and see if you can change one or two words in the title to make the whole meaning change, or be more amusing. Link to the original blog for comparisons.
I was digging through one of Jonathan Legard’s blogs today, smiling to myself at the title : “Webber battling rivals and critics”, and thinking “He’s not the only one, mate.” Then I went through the rest of the blog and discovered that the headlines for lots of his blog articles could be far more amusing if one word was substituted out of it for “Legard”. Perhaps a sub editor at BBC is as much of a fan as I am.
Well I used the Legard blog because it’s where I got my inspiration from, and you have to admit it works from a lexical perspective. You don’t have to go with a negative perspective, pick a blog and work through it.
Keith, I hope you’re not accusing me of being an oddball with a weird sense of humour…
