A fun look at web titles

June 2, 2010

Thanks to Susan Peters for passing on this list from McSweeney’s on great literature titles rewritten for the web. (Like: “7 Awesome Ways Barnyard Animals Are Like Communism.”)

It’s harder than it looks – after all, most novels aren’t written to fit a web title. But let’s give it a try. Here’s mine: “8 Secrets to Repel French Invasions (and Find the Meaning of Life).”

What can you come up with?
