OH MAN OKAY I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE GAME it’s called “the man who melted jack dunn” and it’s where you conflate the author and the title of a book to create a new phrase that means something completely different and/or entirely hilarious.  HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE EXAMPLES:

  • The Martian Chronicles Ray Bradbury
  • The Sheep Look Up John Brunner
  • Clans of the Alphane Moon Philip K. Dick
  • We Can Build You Philip K. Dick
  • Discipline and Punish Michel Foucault

  • You Just Don’t Understand Deborah Tannen, Ph.D
  • Unlikely Stories, Mostly Alasdair Gray
  • Travels with My Aunt Graham Greene
  • Two Sisters Gore Vidal
