Slight misspelling game

For HB ideas

A random snapshot of recent ideas include "Viable alternative to money , Elderly Physicist Euthanastic Diffraction , Downloadable Vaping , Micro Sushi , Temporarily Nationalized Company , Maximally bright lamp , New start for conversations ,Catapult Plates for Cars , Spontaneous fission time dilation , legislative office holder and Planetary Habitation Vehicle"

With very slight edits these become: Visible alternative to money , Elderly Physicist Enthusiastic Diffraction, Downloadable Vamping , Micro Slushi, Temporally Notionalized Company, Maximally bright lump , New stoat for conservations , Catapult Pleats for Cats, Spontaneous fission team dilution, legislative offence helper and Planetary Hesitation Vehicle.

The game is therefore to take an existing idea title and by changing, or for more points rearranging the letters very slightly create a new title for which a meaningful idea can be written.

It's very like the "I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue" game called "One song to the tune of another", except in this case there is no singing, no music, it's not a panel game, points don't make prizes, and it's never preceded or succeeded by a round called "Mornington Crescent".

artificial floating safe Nevaeh by me. Inspired by the misspelled idea "artificial floating safe haeven". [notexactly, Nov 25 2019]

       I've been playing with an idea for an idea called Temporally Nationalized Company for days now .. did you instal another cerebral activity sensor chip in me again.   

       Have you any idea how much it cost me to get the last one removed.
Skewed, Nov 24 2019

       Yes, to the exact penny.

       Go ahead, sonny, if you think you're hard enough, try it. We will kick your head in.

       What's that? You already have a Slight Dispelling Gnome idea that clears the air after someone insults your gardening decor choices?

       Shhh, [Ray], not now ... we're scanning [Skewed's] brain implant, and he's having naughty thoughts about Brenda, the big girl who works in Goods Inwards ... it's very funny and a bit sad.

       This cleverly sits in the midpoint between the “let’s all”, “list”, “naming”, “WTCTTISITMWIBNIIWR”, “pun”, and “word invention” m-f-d categories...

       And they said we couldn't do subtlety ...   

       ... so we beat them to death and burned their twisted corpses on a bonfire.

       //burned their twisted corpses on a bonfire//   

       Oftentimes, [8th], your words turn out to be taken from an interesting or inspiring quote, or fascinating (if gruesome) nugget of history. Thinking this might be one of those, I googled “burned their twisted corpses on a bonfire”.   

       For everyone else: don’t. It’s just hideously detailed forensic reports. Really don’t.   

       For (comparatively) light relief, a lovely article on “scaphism” [link]

       Nope. Not even going to search for that.   

       <learning from experience/> . . . <already did search/>

       This one learns quickly. It is different from the others ; we shall be cautious.   


       S'OK - look up The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin. Funny, clever and harmless.

       Hmm. I’ve read a couple of his novels, but not that one. I’d choose Pratchett or Banks in preference.

       By the way- misspelling game: genius. I often do this by accident when reading the titles. [+].
