Tweak a Title Day

Just in case the world really is about to end, the best we can do is plan to go out with a laugh. With that in mind, I thought we could have some fun with titles.

Here's how it works:

Take a well-known book, song or movie and tweak the title (if you have to) so that it would fit nicely into the zombie genre eg: Who's eating Gilbert Grape?; Eat the Robinsons; or my personal favorite from Twitter's #zombiesongs tag, Braindrops Keep Falling on my Head. 

If you can't think of a zombie one, feel free to make it about vampires, werewolves or any other
horror creature, but make sure you say which one - you know how easily I get confused.

Have fun, and if the we're all still here later, come back and check on what other folks have thought up :)

Here are a few songs that don't even need tweaking:

"Dead Man's Party"--Oingo Boingo

"She's So Cold"--Rolling Stones

"All You Zombies"--Hooters

"Zombie"--The Cranberries

I'm thinking of singing the first two tonight at the Zombie Apocalypse Party being held at a local karaoke bar. What do you think?
