*I'll Give You a Topic...

Watching the Pompeii special last night on Discovery, there was talk of a Black Cloud of Death. I thought to myself, "Self, you can put 'of death' at the end of anything and make it sound scary. Or hilariously funny."

Take the following innocuous items:
cowboy boots
yellow daisy
vacuum cleaner

Cowboy Boots of Death
Yellow Daisy of Death
Vacuum Cleaner of Death

Your turn.

Anal fistula is pretty scary all by itself. Make it an Anal Fistula of Death and people run.

Or maybe they're just running because I said that out loud?

I think I like of Doom even better. It's got that fantasy feel to it, like in a Conan movie. Take a look:

Eau de toilet of Doom!

Wire cutters of Doom!

It works great with book titles too:

Managing the Testing Process of Doom!

How to Break Softwareof Doom!

Men are from Mars, Women all love penis of Doom!

Considering the complaints about the smell, I'd say Microwave Popcorn of Death.
