Mad Magazine does that a lot;such as "300" becomes "Boo",or "Casper" to "Gasper".

Back in D&D days, before the "A" and version numbers, there was a nuisance creature, small, cute, (acted as charm +5 spell) called a "typo" that would adopt a party for some random period of time. It caused the same sort of thing with any attempt to cast a spell.

So, "sleep" might end up as "sleet", or "sheep", or something similar.

We always said "To Fill A Mockingbird" was a novel about taxidermy…

More letters, but only changing one phenome … "Bored of the Rings". Good God, man three three-hour movies … I'll just read the book; it'll be faster.

Well, if the two letters are close on the keyboard, I might double up on the mistake and get "The Rubbing Man".

Ant in udder cases of missprache indemnity, I am afraid to drink "Logan's Rum"; I hear it's killer.

Everyone knows that "Gobzilla" is a documentary on Mick Jagger.

We learnt about the horrible underbelly of the grain refining trade by watching "Natural Born Millers" in school.

Unless its in l33tsp3@k, "Wall-3" must be the sequel to the non-existent sequel of the Pink Floyd movie.

"Star Bars" … the cantina in Mos Eiesley is just the beginning!

I think the Kardashians were profiled on the latest episode of "Lifestyles of the Bitch and Famous".

In the sequel to the famous E. B. White movie, we see the prima donna daughter of the title character's entire life in "Charlotte's Deb".

The animated psycho horror drama, "The Bobbit" includes a surprise cameo by Lorena, herself.

OK … I have to go do something now.
