The whodunit homage Knives Out is officially getting a sequel, but what to call it? The official Twitter account requested title suggestions from fans, and has gotten a flurry of responses from the silly to the sincere. But mostly silly.
“Alright we need title suggestions for the sequel!” the tweet reads. “Drop em!” The result is a critical mass of replies, likes, and retweets. One suggestion is “KNIIVES OUT” to form the Roman numeral 2. Other popular suggestions include Knives In, and Knives Out 2: No Forks Given. You can see some of our favorite cheeky suggestions below.

Knives Out was Rian Johnson’s follow-up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but far from a special effects blockbuster. Instead he went for an ensemble mystery in the style of Agatha Christie, complete with a central detective character. Johnson announced that character, Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) will return for the sequel, but the rest of the cast is up in the air.
Johnson compared Blanc to Christie’s Hercule Poirot character, who was featured in several mystery novels with different surrounding characters–most famously Murder on the Orient Express. For more on Knives Out, check out GameSpot’s Knives Out review.
