Fibbing Friday my responses for 8th October

Have just noticed that when this gets published, it will be my 12, 500th post, and that is no fib!!!

Earlier I set 10 questions about book titles.
Here are my answers which I hope raise a smile today.
1. A Tale of Two Cities
This was about the London to Brighton Car Rally during the petrol shortage crisis.
2. Pride and Prejudice
Written by Boris Johnson, this was about looking after Number 1.
Some bright spark in the proofing process left off the ‘0’ as it should have read Number 10.
3. Little Women
This was written by a plastic surgeon who specialised in breast implants.
4. The Carpetbaggers
A gang of carpet thieves cut their spoils into identical sized squares and then sold them as carpet tiles on a market stall.
5. What Katy Did Next
Following her arrest, not very much. She’d already done most of it with mixed results and was now a shadow of her former self.
6. Dune
Written by Sandy Mile this was about a stretch of deserted beach that was cultivated for turtles to lay their eggs in safety.
7. Cider with Rosie
This was actually a misprint in the title and should have read ‘Rosé’ as in wine. The author was so pickled at the time, he didn’t notice and it went on to be a best seller.
8. Far from the Madding Crowd
A tale of a high profile couple who wanted a peaceful and quiet life, but after a few days, had severe media withdrawal so accepted several TV deals then wrote a book about their ‘suffering’ and talked about it all the time to anyone who would listen.
9. Jaws
Seymour Cavity wrote this as a side line to his job as a dentist. He was always seeing the funny side despite his patients pain. It didn’t sell well.
10. The Lord of the Rings
Tiffany Diamond’s debut full of subtle humour and insight about disastrous engagements and partner choices.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
