Have you ever heard the expression, “You can’t judge a book by its cover?” … “Why do you think people say that?”

And his rebuttal was essentially, “I didn’t judge it by the cover. I judged it by the title.”

How stupid is that?? No, idiot, you shouldn’t judge books by the title either. Below is a list of book titles and what they are not about.

  • To Kill a Mockingbird – Not a hunting book
  • The Catcher in the Rye – Not a story about baseball in the Midwest
  • Lord of the Flies – A day in the life of a royal housefly
  • The Grapes of Wrath – When fruit bites back
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God – The inner workings of religious retreats
  • All the King’s Men – An encyclopedia of men that worked for the King
  • The Deer Hunter – Nothing to do with hunting deer
  • 1984 – An almanac of the year 1984
