The #ReplaceaWordWithBulldog Game!

Bulldogs love freedom!
If you're traveling this Fourth of July weekend, here's a fun game you can play in the car--or on Twitter.  On Twitter sometimes people have these games where you replace a word of a movie title or something with another word.  One day I was listening to a CD in my car and thought of replacing a word in the song title with "bulldog" to see what sorts of funny titles I could come up with.  I've kept doing it and sometimes it makes for some pretty interesting new titles.

It's a pretty simple game to play.   For example let's take an easy one:  "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John.  You can change it to:

Tiny Bulldog
Bulldog Dancer

Here's another fun one:  "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" by the Beatles can become "Bulldog in the Sky With Diamonds" or "Lucy in the Bulldog With Diamonds" or "Lucy in the Sky With Bulldogs."  All of them make as much sense as the original.

Obviously you want titles that are more than one word.  And you don't want a title that's like "The Rose" because all you can get is "The Bulldog" and what fun is that?  I allow myself to pluralize "bulldog" for some, but that's it.  You can only change ONE WORD to Bulldog(s); all the rest of the words have to remain the same or else it would be too easy.

Here are some others:
  • Midnight at the Movies = Bulldog at the Movies
  • Little Greenies = Little Bulldogs
  • Anna Begins = Bulldog Begins
