Worst Titles Ever

What's in a name? Quite a bit, really.

When these folks were told that a title should be given some thought, omitting the word 'good' from that statement was a mistake.

When considering a title, consider that you will be remembered for a great one.

Consider also that you will be remembered just as much for one of these.

Keep in mind that if you do come up with a foul moniker, a distinction will await you.

That unwanted distinction is that you will make it onto this list of shame.

**************
Books That Can Stink Without Being Opened

“Cooking With Pooh”, a real book from Disney.
“Letting It Go: a History of American Incontinence”
“The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification”
“Everything You’ll Need to Remember About Alzheimer’s”
“My Son The Admiral… Bringing Up The Rear”
“Probate… Where There’s A Will, There’s A Wait”
“Self Esteem for Dummies”
“The Tao of Pooh”
“Introduction to Eye-Gouging Boredom”
“Cakes and Ale”


And it also shows up quite a bit in the
Movies

"Octopussy"
"The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"
"Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium"
"Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood"
"Sssssss"

"Up Close & Personal"
"Operation Dumbo Drop"
"Chu Chu and the Philly Flash"
"Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood"
"Dreamcatcher"

and
"Gigli", which is pronounced "Shitsucker"


We also have some movies with
Bad Two Word Titles.

"Free Willy"
"Hope Floats"
"Feeling Minnesota"
"Crossing Delancey,"
"Wholly Moses!"
"Leaving Normal"
"Making Love"
"Dying Young"
"Jeepers Creepers"


Finally, we have the

King of the Two Word Title Blunders.

“The Postman”,
Kevin Costner’s stinkasaurus.

I wonder if he has some new stinkthings in the works.
I can see it now;

Coming soon from Kevin Costner
"The Meter Reader" ,
“The Tax Appraiser”,
“The Poll Worker”,

and one that’s sure to be a Summer blockbuster,
“The Septic Tank Guy”!
