Prepositional Phrase Equals Coolness

Go To

When naming anything - a place, a weapon, a title, a society, anything - just add a prepositional phrase to get instant AWESOME! This is most commonly seen when being used to beef up the titles of movies and books. The most frequently used preposition for this is "of (put noun of choice here)", but "with" and "for" are also usable. Often times, when this is used, the thing being upgraded wouldn't be half as cool or interesting without their handy-dandy prepositional phrases.
