In the Globe & Mail's Book section on Saturdays, there is a word-game
challenge for readers to play. Each week is a different challenge.
Last week's was to add one word to a movie title, and describe the new
movie that results (eg "*From Russia With Love Handles*--Kirstie Alley
as the new Bond Girl.")
The Austen entry:
*The Sixth Sense and Sensibility*--
tag line: "I see dead people--in corsets!"
