Last week, the Twitter hashtag “My Cookbook Is Named” took off — and it’s been a gold mine of relatability ever since.

If you haven’t been following along (or throwing your own brilliant title in the mix), the thread is full of punny and self-deprecating titles that will make you LOL. And isn’t that just what your Tuesday needs? We think so.

Here are a few highlights in the key categories:

In the category of kitchen mistakes and mishaps, we giggled at Setting off the entire building’s fire alarm in under 5 minutes ,From beige to burnt, and Don’t forget to turn the oven on. Our favorite contribution might be this title from @justamy83, who writes, It’s just the number for Poison Control.

Cooks who are stuck in a rut was another popular theme. Witness: Send Noodz, How to Make #IG Mush, Just wrap it in bacon, and Can I put hot sauce on it?!

Plenty of people felt their cookbook would do best if it expressed their excellent abilities to have other people cook their food. The professional’s guide to ordering pizza, Food I want someone else to cook for me, and How to order takeout were a few faves.

There were quite a few puns in the mix as well. Baking Bad, Wok This Ray (from a guy named Ray who cooks with a wok, clearly!), and You Want a Pizza Me, Tough Guy?

There’s already five days worth of responses to the question up on Twitter, but there’s no reason not to add your own — you never know, you may just get a book deal out of it!
