Title: Title Juxtaposition
Post by: Twik on March 17, 2007, 09:20:54 PM
I was reminded of a game I saw once on another board - look for two thread titles next to each other, that seem to be related, even if they really aren't. Double points for double entrendres.

Which brings up the odd combination in Good News!:

My cousin is pregnant!
I DID IT!!!

LOL...When I first met DF (when we were just becoming friends), I noticed some pretty bizarre spelling in his notes, and joked, "What are you, dyslexic or something?" [Yes, cue a little visit to E-Hell; I know it was rude and thoughtless of me].

He said, "Yes." [And he is]

Oops. :-[

Decades ago when I was being graduated from College, there was a wonderful title juxtoposition.

The Commencement exercises were being held in a downtown movie theater.  The management changed the large lighted sign over the entrance to alert people that the afternoon showings would be suspended. However, the evening showings would be going on as usual. 

When we arrived for the ceremonies, the sign read

"College of X Commencement.  Escape From Planet of the Apes."   :D

You can bet that everyone had to have a photo of that sign.  I've lost my copy over the years but it still brings a smile to my face.

This isn't from thread titles, but the end of one commercial and the beginning of another.

Commercial years ago for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming out on (can you believe it???) VHS.  Commercial ends with: "This year, get them something you know they'll REALLY love!" 

Followed immediately (not even a gap between the two commercials) by: "FOOT ITCH!"  (an ad for foot powder).

I laughed.

This isn't from thread titles, but the end of one commercial and the beginning of another.

Followed immediately (not even a gap between the two commercials) by: "FOOT ITCH!"  (an ad for foot powder).

I laughed.

That one reminded me of another one, I was watching Welcome Back Kotter, and a commercial came on, that said "Has this ever happened to you?" and then flashed to a scene of Julie Kotter very pregnant! Also, a few years ago, I was in Target in the entertainment section, with major cramps and bloating after breakfast out with my mom, Dsis, and a friend of mom's, and there was a Batman cartoon on the tv screen above, and just as I let a deadly fart go, I happened to look up to hear "Ewwwwww Batman, WHAT STINKS!"

OK, back to the thread

Well, that would work too, LOL.

I was thinking of it as, it's "The Gross Out Thread", and the first thing somebody says in it is "I finally worked up the nerve to taste...", and what they tasted might be very gross.

Funny either way, though!
