Band Names

Another day, another list, another rejection. This one actually came back within two days, although I like it better than the "shake" list. Maybe it's time to give lists the old heave-ho.

Shake Your Moneymaker

This rejection came in today, and to be honest, I'm not that enamored of it myself. As you can guess, I submit a lot of lists to various places. Why? They're pretty easy. I actually prefer writing longer pieces (I apologize for the bus bit), but there aren't too many outlets for them for someone with not much writing experience.

To mediocrity!

Things to Shake Other Than Laffy Taffy

A martini
Hands with constituents
Members of the Shaker religion
A carton of orange juice
A broken watch
Angry fists
A burnt-out light bulb
Your head in bewilderment
