    This thread title works much better than the puppet master one. I'm not saying its a complete return to form (for example it is still lacking the '???' at the end of it) but it is more in line with what we hope for - ie a thread title that gives no suggestion of what the content is and yet employs a 'play on words' (in this case aha instead of haha) which becomes clear after we've clicked it and discovered what lies within.

    5/10

    I've never found anything that Steve Coogan has ever done or said even remotely amusing. Do you really expect me to sit there for forty-four minutes watching a video of him?

    What does Steve Coogan have to do with reviewing Neil's thread titles?

    For the love of God @Bluey will you PLEASE stay on topic?! :sulk:

    I liked the title, but the 'ah' bit confuses me. Do people laugh like that? 'Ha ha' would be the usual way of writing it, so what is 'ah ha'? Was Neil simply making an honest mistake or was he attempting to confuse us by putting the letters the wrong way round?

    Overall: It's a succinct title and one that gets to the point quickly. However the 'ah' part confuses and detracts from the overall effect. A disappointment.

    That explains why I've never heard of it.

    Now that you are aware of the word play involved in the threads cryptic title @Bluey, would you like to change your score?

    Yes I would. I've decided that the wordplay was so terrible that I'm going to downgrade my original rating to 2 out of 10.
