I like the idea of hashtag games. I keep thinking I should, you know, actually engage in them. Only—

The other day, Adam Beechen, author of Hench and What I did on my Hypergalactic Interstellar Summer Vacation and childhood friend of Your Humble Blogger, tweeted this:

I came up with two right away: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Fifth Dimension and Hello, Dhalgren!. Then I sent out this one:

Oh, I was proud of that one. Then I spend quite some time trying to decide where to put the skiffy into The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. The obvious thing is to set it on Titan, but I decided, in the end, after an extended debate in my mind utilizing three separate levels of analysis, that The Best Little Wormhole in Texas is funnier.

I don’t know whether the game had quietly died whilst I argued out the humor with myself. If it didn’t, that one killed it.

See, I could happily do these all day.
