Classic Books Get a Funny Makeover

The weekend is almost here,so let's celebrate a bit early with a few laughs.Comedy writer Dan Wilbur recently created Better Book Titles,a blog that renames famous works of literature.Dan tosses out the original titles and replaces them with new ones that cleverly describe what the books are all about.Since I know many of you are rather bookish (woo-hoo!) I thought you'd get a kick out of this piece of internet hilarity as well.
