Best Unintentional Pun Ever

Volume II of The Dramatic Works of Thomas Dekker, edited by Fredson Bowers (Cambridge, 1955), contains these five titles:

  • The Honest Whore, Parts I and II
  • The Magnificent Entertainment
  • Westward Ho
  • Northward Ho
  • The Whore of Babylon

Four out of five is not bad, though it would be better if the second title were omitted.
