Challenge #196 at slashthedrabble is 2008's Worst Country Song Titles, adapted from a completely innocent suggestion by teh_gandu. :D

Drabbles of 100 words and ficlets of 200, 300, 400 and 500 words exactly are acceptable, and please use cut tags. Have fun!

Also, as this is a multi-fandom community, please remember to add a header mentioning which fandom(s) and pairing(s) you are drabbling in. Thanks. :D

A new challenge will be posted around midnight EST on the 11th February, 2009. (That's 5am on the 12th, London time.) Feel free to drop a reminder comment here if it looks like I've forgotten (again).

Suggestions for future prompts are always welcome. The list of previous prompts can be found here.

Oh, God! These are GREAT!

Mama Get The Hammer (There’s A Fly On Papa’s Head)

Jan. 29th, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC)
That's the one that made my decision for me. That, and The Next Time You Throw That Fryin’ Pan, My Face Ain’t Gonna Be There.

I'm waiting with bated breath to see what gems come out of this. *g*
Jan. 29th, 2009 02:52 pm (UTC)
Great prompts :D

I can't believe these are actual songtitles!!
Jan. 29th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
I thought that too, so I googled a few to make sure, and wow, they really really are. *g*
Jan. 29th, 2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
I'm going to have some fun with some of these titles...

At least these titles have brought an amusing smile to my face, which was needed given the blatant homophobia I just came across in the trashy tabiod out country likes to call The Daily Mail. I certainly do not expect to see my comments printed, women like Amanda Platell continue to attack gay people, bet she wouldn't attack a person of colour. *grumbles*
Jan. 29th, 2009 05:59 pm (UTC)
Ack. I'm not even going to ask. But it doesn't surprise me at all; a lot of their editorials seem designed to offend. :/

Just wanted to say "thanx for the great suggestion" for this weeks challenge. Keep up the good work..I enjoy many of your suggestions. :)
Peace \/
Jan. 29th, 2009 04:45 pm (UTC)
This is possibly one of the best challenges in anything ever. Huzzah!
Jan. 29th, 2009 04:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. :D
Jan. 29th, 2009 09:32 pm (UTC)
I was going to suggest another "Song title" prompt! I was so in the mood for one. And such a fun prompt, too. Love it!

While I'm here . . . How about "100 Best Movies/Novels of All Time" at some future date?
Jan. 29th, 2009 10:12 pm (UTC)
Song titles are always good fun, and these are classics! :D

I( like the idea of the movie/novel lists too. I'm adding them to the ideas list for later regurgitatin. Thanks!

Just wondering are we allowed to submit South Park, As Told By Ginger or Kim Possible drabbles? Not that I'd ever write anything higher than 12A/PG-13 for cartoons, but, thought I'd ask.

Also, how about Take That song titles? Who would've thought it? That they're actually better now than back in the 90's.
Feb. 1st, 2009 09:49 pm (UTC)
Oh, cartoons are certainly fair game.
We already have family guy: brian/stewie drabbles. How much worse could it get? ;)

I'll make a note of Take That on the prompt list. Thanks!

I've never really seen FG, only a snipet here and there. I'm more of a South Park gal :) Plus, I got my mum hooked on South Park (thank you first open heart surgery *g*)
Feb. 7th, 2009 11:29 pm (UTC)
Well, if those snippets contained a snotty-voiced baby in diapers and the family dog... consider yourself warned. :D

South Park is definitely slashable. Hilariously so, I would imagine. *g*
Feb. 5th, 2009 07:41 am (UTC)
Oh man laughs n grins then laughs some more. =) Even if I can't manage to stir me muses I just wanted to say thank you for this post. These songs titles made me giggle aloud for real.
Feb. 6th, 2009 04:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It put a grin on my face too. :D

Due to RL interruptions, the challenge will be running until next week, so keep poking those muses. ;)
Feb. 7th, 2009 10:39 pm (UTC)
The muses returned, (Yea!) thanx in part to this challenge. I'm glad it's running for another week but do hope that the RL interruptions aren't bad ones for ya. :) Peace \/
Feb. 7th, 2009 11:29 pm (UTC)
Not bad, just... interrupting my online (real *g*) life.

It's been snowing badly in my area and several of my colleagues cannot get in to work. As I live about 200 yards away from the shop, I get phonecalls at odd hours asking me to go in and cover shifts for people who haven't shown. :/
Feb. 6th, 2009 01:48 pm (UTC)
Does the challenge run for another week, then?
Feb. 6th, 2009 04:25 pm (UTC)
Ack, yes! RL interfered and I keep forgetting to post, so I will do it now, announcing a continuation of the theme. Thanks for the reminder!
