The Chronicles of Narnia, #JunkFoodNovels Style

#JunkFoodNovels is a super-fun, time-wasting TweetMeme that publisher W.W. Norton initiated. Participants tweet the names of novels, with key words replaced with the names of junk foods. So, for example, A Christmas Carol becomes A Christmas Caramel, and Gravity's Rainbow becomes Gravy's Rainbow.

Last night I tweeted The Lion, The Witch and The Waffles. Upon further reflection, one could junk food up the entire series:

The Magician's Necco Wafers

The Lion, The Witch and the Waffles (comes next, of course)

The Horse-tess Cupcake and His Boy

Disney Princess Fruit Snacks Caspian

The Voyage of the Frosted Shredded Wheater

The Silver Chairry Pie

The Last Bottle Caps

Bottle Caps is a good one, by the way - it's a candy made by the Willy Wonka Candy Company, a real candy company inspired by the fictional candy company in a Roald Dahl novel!

Postscript: If you love Hostess cupcakes, you might like to wear this matching cupcake-inspired camisole and panties by Backseat by Undergirl. (It's not the best photo, for you see, my college design notebook turned out to be surprising difficult to photograph.) Or you can add them to your collection of pastry-themed underwear and, on occasion, loan them to your superhero-loving rock star boyfriend while you wear his Superman undies.

Some great ideas - good to see your using your time sensibly !! :D How about The Vampire Donuts? Slurrp on a little Damon-Delight. I know that'd be my lollipop of choice :D You'd choose, I dunno: Sticky Stephan though, huh? :D

Sorry, I just watched the infamous Ian Somerhalder sex scene - AGAIN!

Watching the infamous Ian Somerhalder sex scene is not something to apologize for.

So fun! Now I'm going to rifle through the leftover Halloween candy.

Erin O'Riordan said...

Aquariann, TriGirl, thanks so much for stopping by! This is a fun time-waste, but it's a literary time-waste, so that makes it okay.

I've been AWOL the past few days, doped up on muscle relaxants. If I weren't on drugs, this post would still be yummy! LOL What fun.
