Something reminded me today, of the silly book titles we used to pass around amongst ourselves, in my adolescence.

The Flood in the Lavatory by I P Squint

The Nail in the Bannister by R Stornaway

The Hole in the Bed       by Mr Completely.

etc etc.

The stop in the desert by __________ ____

The rooster's mistake by _____ ____

Treasure in the outhouse by I. P. Nichols

Rusty bedsprings by I. P. Knightly


aaaaarrgh! There were dozens more, which, mercifully, I have forgotten.
Thanks for the memories, John. My mother got a kick out of these.

"The Tiger's Revenge" is by far the best of these.

Do I have to name the author.

Perhaps a bit of a drift: but I have always been delighted to hzave learned from a trainee teacher that a main course textbook was a History Of British Education by one Dr Birchenough.

And I have googled & it is true - I wasn't making it up ~~

History of elementary education in England and Wales from 1800.

... Author: Birchenough, Charles,

Can't help wondering BTW if any train of thought might conceivably have led from my first to my second post just above...

Birchenough ~ that's worth the thread-drift. Weirdly enough, I start to wonder f that surname isn't an Anglicisation (or simply cognate with similar €pean name).

back to the thread:
Run for the backhouse by Willie Makeit.

"Klau mich" (pinch me) was a book title in Germany some decades ago. The sales were by far not as good as the circulation was.

Dear Dr Word
The drift was relating to two other threads or more currently on the go relating to Athiests and threads being trolled.
To me it was an "in" joke hee hee

"The Pedant" by Dawson Comas?
or "Not Much Used Now" By Sammi Colon
How about "Wo ist das Geschindeskeitsmesser" by Wie Kent
