Juvenile humour

It turns out that if you take the title of a book and append the phrase “in your pants”, the resulting title is often more amusing than the original. Here I present you some examples:

About the Size of it: The Common Sense Approach to Measuring Things in Your Pants
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in Your Pants
All About Worship: Insights & Perspectives on Worship in Your Pants
Being Human in Your Pants
Calculus: A New Horizon in Your Pants
Computer Networking: A Top-down Approach Featuring the Internet in Your Pants
Computer Organization and Design: The Hardware/Software Interface in Your Pants
Coping with Controversy in Your Pants
The Diamond Age: Or, a Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer in Your Pants
Dick Smith’s Fun Way into Electronics in Your Pants
God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God in Your Pants?
The Snow in Your Pants

For some automated humour, I have just written a little script that will transform the titles of your books most recently added to LibraryThing in similar manner. Take a look at what it does for my books, or try it on your or your friend’s collection.

Oh, and on the topic of pants, if you have not read Star Wars pants quotes, perhaps you will be amused to do so. I cannot find the original site that I remember from years ago, but they are still funny. The premise is to take a line from Star Wars and replace one word with the word ‘pants’, thus improving the line.

Well, it is said that small things amuse small minds.

  1. I obviously have a very small mind, and so was hugely amused. I presume it is an inverse law.
