Via Kottke, book titles if they were written today:

Then: The Gospel of Matthew
Now: 40 Days and a Mule: How One Man Quit His Job and Became the Boss

Then: Crime and Punishment
Now: Confessions of a Axe Murderer: How Killing An Old Woman Showed Me the Truth About Life, Love, and Morality

Then: The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe
Now: Harry Potter and the whatever the fuck

They are even more funny collectively than in isolation.
