In the not-too-distant past, a particular hashtag/topic was trending on Twitter. The implicit assignment in the hashtag "FattenAMovie" was to alter a movie's title to include a fattening food item or an activity that would lead to gaining weight. Being an unrepentant punster, I dove in with all ten fingers.

Herewith, my highly-caloric list:

  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Gallstone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Skittles
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Baked Alaskaban
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fine Chardonnay
  • Harry Potter and the Take-Out Order of the Phoenix
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood-Pudding Prince
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Halloween Candy
  • The Lion, the Sandwich, and the Mayo
  • Braising Arizona
  • Rocky Road and Bullwinkle
  • Sweet Potato Home Fries Alabama
  • While You Were Eating
  • The Mint Jelly of the Lambs
  • Black Forest Ham Gump
  • The Curds and Whey We Were
  • The Cheese Whiz of Oz
  • The Count of Monte Crisco
  • Heaven Can Weight
  • American Moon Pie
  • We BBQed a Zoo
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Croissant

And for some reason, the one that garnered the most positive results, i.e., retweets and favorites:

  • Cool Ranch Luke

Excuse me now, I've got a deep yearning to fill my belly with anything that isn't moving.
