ORGIASTYCZNI DOKTORZY - Orgiastic Doctors
NAJBARDZIEJ SPLUGAWIONY UPIÓR - The most defiled phantom

SPODNIE W OKNIE BOKU KLEJU (NADCHODZI PRADZIAD) - Pants (trousers ;-)) in the window on the side of glue (Here it comes the great grandfather)

Titles being stored in separate file (Titles.txt) and are treated just as regular verse (will be discussed later). Sometimes titles are being decorated with extra parts from TitleEx.txt to increase fun factor even more 😉
