Failed Westerns: Trending Topic

A trending topic on Twitter these past couple of days has been Failed Westerns, where, basically, people tweet parody titles of famous westerns. So, rather than Gunsmoke, we might have had the failed title Incensesmoke; rather than Have Gun, Will Travel, we might have Have Guppy, Will Travel; rather than My Darling Clementine, we might have My Darling Chlamydia. Well, you get the picture. Below is a sample of tweeted titles (if you are on twitter, just search #failedwesterns for the thousands of tweeted titles out there):

High Plains Dry Cleaner

High Plains Hipster

High Plains Snifter

High Plains Tea

High Plains Musical

There’s a whole (everchanging) list of tweeted failed westerns available as well. Click here for the The Best Failed Westerns List.

There’s a lot of repetition of names (e.g., Pasty Rider), and I figure that the readers of the WLA Blog could do better–if only because we actually know more westerns than the few that keep getting repeated. Feel free to use the comment link to post your own Fail Westerns.
