These works have titles [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin which are puns of some sort]]. The creators are probably slightly less proud of themselves than the creators of works with {{Double Meaning Title}}s. Or at least they ''should'' be. Like with the DoubleMeaningTitle, it's usually stubbornly resistant to translation to other languages, resulting in the need for a CompletelyDifferentTitle.

See EpunymousTitle for a common subtrope; also compare JustifiedTitle. IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming sometimes employs this.
