Ride and Rejudice – a tribute to the Guardian typesetters!
A Man for All Seasons – not the classic film (and book) but a biography perhaps of a famous pizza chef
Murder on the Tesco Express – in the run up to Christmas, I know it can be murder in the Tesco Express
Blandings Estate – as in Council estate and not Castle, a bit of a let down after Wodehouse’s original and wonderful novel
(Alfa) Romeo and Juliet – one for the car fans.
Ivor the Gin – more of a personal characteristic than a children’s classic
The Happy Rinc – a tribute to ice skating emporiums perhaps…
The Temp – one of Shakespeare’s lesser known works and set in an office, several hundred years ahead of his time. He really was a bright boy!
Ham – (Prince of Bacon!)
Leaping Beauty – the opposite to the original story but conjures up a nice image all the same.
The Near Miss Man – I don’t know if there is a book called The Hitman but, if so, this is my reply to it.
Five Go to the Isle of Wight on A Cheap Day Return – doesn’t have quite the same ring as going to Kirrin Island does it? I strongly suspect there’s nothing at all mysterious about the lovely Cowes, Ryde or Shanklin.
The Italian Work Experience Scheme – Where out heroes are only “meant to blow the bloody patio doors off” perhaps?
Kind Ears and Nets – to enhance the average twitter’s bird watching and ringing experiences perhaps?
The Lavender Slight Incline Gathering – not so enticing without the hill and mob perhaps? A film of understatement maybe?
A Shot in the Ark – and Noah finds the unicorns aren’t going to survive the flood after all…
