Not sure how to categorize these...

I thought I'd burned out on these, but this morning I woke up with several of them batting around in my head.  I'm not sure how to categorize them, but I think they're still mash-ups:

 

Welcome to the Monkeybars:  Kurt Vonnegut looks back to his school days

 

Now We Are Sixty:  A.A. Milne rewrites his classic for the Baby Boomer generation

 

The Tell-tale Fart:  Edgar Allen Poe takes on the Young Adult market

 

Cautiously Positive Expectations:  Charles Dickens revamped for the 21st Century reader

 

A Seasonal Carol:  (same as above) 

 

Celsius 232.7777: Ray Bradbury for the metric age

 

Rosemary's Teenager:  Ira Levin revisits the devil's spawn

I can't remember when it was published, but Rosemary's baby must be in her 30's by now. I wonder how those horns are working out with her work ensemble?

Yeah, that baby's pushing forty. But somehow a teenaged demon sounded scarier!

No matter what the age, a spawn of the devil is a scary prospect! Speaking of Mashups, what about "Rosemary's Baby Einstein"?

Even better!
