    Of all your thread titles this is perhaps the weakest I have seen so far.

    We have all come to expect the title to slightly misrepresent the content in an effort to turn it into a click-baiting,tabloid headline type 'pun' by utilising some form of of play on words or by reverse engineering a well known phrase. In this instance you have merely taken 'puppet master', placed the second word before the first and then added an 'of' in the middle. It doesn't even end with the customary aggressive use of several question marks in a row.

    VERY poor. 1/10

    I urge you to re-edit the title in line with your usual standard. And to aid you on your way here are a list of famous quotes relating to puppets that you could possibly adapt for this purpose.

    It's a film that I'm definitely going to avoid.

    This is not relevant. This is a discussion about lazy thread titles. Please try to remain on-topic.

    Well undies, after five or six years and thousands of threads, even I'm running out of punny titles. Still at least if I leave here I can always get a job writing headline titles for the sun.
