Sucker for pun-oriented memes: the best of #unseenprequels

I admit it: I’m a complete pushover for slapstick humor. And today’s meme on Twitter, #unseenprequels*, has me in stitches. The idea: take a movie and slightly alter the title to come up with its prequel, which no one would have ever, ever paid to see. Hilarity ensues.

My favorites, in no particular order:

  • @Bryce1984 The Lambs That Wouldn’t Shut Up #unseenprequels
  • @jchinchar #unseenprequels Some Like It Tepid
  • @matthasarms: Apocalypse Soon. #unseenprequels
  • @steviedunn: The Day the Earth Continued Spinning #unseenprequels
  • @PCTim: #unseenprequels The OK, The not so OK, and the unattractive
  • @blogdiva: #unseenprequels Second-Base and The City
  • @Alcudiabarfly: #unseenprequels dry-spell in the city
