Judging a Book By Its Title

Norm Geras links to this article about the competition for Oddest Book Title of the Year. The prize has been awarded since 1978, and past winners include Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice (1978), Living with Crazy Buttocks (2002), and my favorite, Bombproof your Horse (2004).

This year's favorite is probably The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification, but Norm has a few thoughts about another contender.
