SUBSTITUTION...

Postby Sue Sue Applegate » January 1st, 2013, 6:09 pm

This is a silly word game I played in college while I was grading a million and one freshman essays, most of which began with "In today's society of now" or "The benefits of drill team are very beneficial."

Subsitute the word "Javelina" for any word in a song title, movie title, book title, or televison program.
For example, "Look Homeward, Javelina."

If it's funny, respond with a smiley face. If you have a new one, just add it!

This reminds me of something we used to do in younger days - add the the words "in bed" to any title.

Abott and Costello Meet Frankenstein in Bed

and so on.
