Cookbook Reality Check



Below are the titles of thirty cookbooks. Ten of the titles belong to books that really exist, and twenty were made up by your fellow minions. I did not use all titles that were submitted, as the list would have been too long. If you submitted a title that is an actual cookbook (The Zombie Cookbook, To Serve Man, Anything to do with Roadkill), it wasn't used. The actual titles are available at BN.com. For an extra challenge, separate the fake titles into the ten submitted by Whirlochre and the ten submitted by others.

Kind of you to give me credit, but you didn't use my title. Because it was crap!

'Charlie Sheen Teaches Extreme Dough Kneading'

That one brought Dr. Pepper out of my nose! Thanks for the stinging sensation.

Not because it was crap, because it's the title of an actual cookbook.

I think I preferred it when I was crap.
