Okay, I'm editing a long list of book titles from a new series, and I come across "Erin Meets Tiffy." Probably a little story about a boy and a girl meeting each other. They probably draw a picture together.

After I stopped sniggering about "tiffy," I went on, to find a title called "Apples for Tiffy." Fair enough. They probably count them, or comment on how some are yellow and some are read. We've got some epic literature here.

Then, I found "Erin Rides Tiffy." This gave me a mild heart attack.

Twenty lines later, I've found "Meg's Tiny Red Teddy," and "Max and Puffing Billy," so I have to assume we're going for an older audience than I'd previously imagined...

Given that it's probably a horse the book is referring to, you should thank your lucky stars it wasn't "Tiffy rides Erin".

*nodnod* I see all these titles totally detatched from any context or illustration, so sometimes these things get a little strange. Like "Come in the Grass." That was a scary one.

It reminds me of the song 'When I Was On Top Of You' from 'Cannibal!' :)

I still can't hear or see the name Leanne without snickering.

I really hope Tiffy is a horse
