Guess the Title 8


Below are descriptions of ten animal books with amusing titles. The descriptions come from BN.com, where the books are available. Your job is to figure out which is the actual title of the book. The other titles are fakes, created by the Evil Minions.


1. The unauthorized album of caught-in-the-act photos your beloved furry ones never meant for you to see.

2. Every generation brings a few elite cats who rise above their species. Cats who make a difference. Cats who inspire us with their bravery. Cats who broaden the world's understanding of science, history, art, and religion.

3. Men and dogs have lived in close symbiosis from literally the beginnings of civilization itself and still, after 200,000 years we can't keep the dog from jumping up on the dining room table and eating all the hamburger buns." The legendary Rabbis of the Boca Raton Theological Seminary don't claim that they can rectify that situation, but they can make it funny.

7. This hilarious book reminds us why we give them free room and board. The occasional comment on human affairs in dog disguise, and a lot about pups on their own terms. From howling at the moon to refusing to fetch, from the merits of canned versus dry food to those irresistibly wagging tails . . .

"101 reasons to dump your man and get a cat?" Nothing like feeding those crazy cat lady myths.

BuffySquirrel said...

Yeah, must have been tough whittling it down to only 101.

I got 7 1/2 right--on one, I thought two were right and tossed a mental coin; it came up wrong.

These were all funny. Good job!

"Doggy Style" had me laughing out loud. And, as usual, some of the fake titles were much better than the real ones. Fun exercise...
