OMG too funny literally laughing out loud now at that. The expression on the kid is perfect for the new title...

"Do you ... go into the bathroom with the leatherclad biker? Turn to page 82.
Or
Do you ... sit in the out of the way corner booth with the tall black woman with the deep voice? Turn to page 69!"


Obviously some Viking adventure, but I don't remember that original book. I still have about 20 or so of those CYOA books in a box 15 feet away from my desk right now.

Yes!!!!!! During WWII in the Pacific theater, GI's and Marines would have passwords and replies that had the letter L in them to add another check for misuse by the Japanese. The Japanese typically pronounced the letter L as a cross between the R sound and L sound, which, to the American ear was clearly and R sound.
