Spinal Tap

Rol has created a pretty good story from the spines of some of his books so I thought I'd have a go.
It's not the best and I know I've used some creative license, but it was 8 in the morning.

Goldilocks & The Three Bears
Use Of Weapons (Ian M. Banks)
With Nails (Richard E. Grant)
In Cold Blood (Truman Capote)
=
Pretty Dead Things (Barbara Nadel)
&
A Spot Of Bother (Mark Haddon)

Catch Me If You Can! (Frank W. Abagnale)

Think you can do better?

Good stuff.

If only there were more books named after punctuation marks.

I tried this with my pride and joy - my leather-bound collectors editions of Razzle (1978-96)

However, all I came up with was:

Once upon a ...cock, jizz, inside: massive jizzy tits! knockers, more knockers, knockers galore, nob-eating nuneaton newcomer nancy says .. wives with cocks, top dogging spots revealed.. the end

Its not a conventional story, I grant you.

God damn it, Charlie! I knew you wouldn't forget.

Remember my 30th birthday party we had on that tugboat off the coast of Vanuatu?
When you stood up on that roulette table with that bottle of Louis XIII brandy and shouted "Peel Me, peel me! I'm a lemon!", I though I was going to piss myself laughing.
Every time I see Bono he still goes on about it.

You madman.

I was going to mix up kid's books with something pornographic to see what the results would be... but I, er, got sidetracked. Enid Blyton is such a gripping read...

Inchy said...

Come on Steve, you can do it.

England expects . . .
