I forgot the title, but it had a picture of a giant butt on the front. It was about your butt taking your body over… X(

Now keep in mind I haven’t read it. The one that I have read with the funniest title (and incidentally was one of the funniest I have read) is Tom Robbins’ Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates. One of my favorites.

Hail, brownlemur!

My not-as-funny-as-brownlemur’s answer.

P.S. Did you read the description and reviews to How to Good Bye Depression… ? Hilarious!

The Wit and Wisdom of Spiro Agnew.

I know it’s way out of date, but I couldn’t resist.

I always loved, “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies.”

some of my favs are the David sedaris books Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Courduroy and Denim, Holidays On Ice.

P.S all fantastic books

Urgh, I can’t read David Sedaris. I love his performances but when I try to read his books, I find them sad and disturbing – I don’t hear his dry, witty presentation in my head and it’s just not the same.

funniest to me was (from goo to you by the way of the zoo)

I am the Cheese by Robert Cormier, Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan (because it’s in no way about trout fishing), and of course, Everyone Poops, and How to Shit in the Woods.

If you can’t get enough of wacky book titles, you should check out the book I got for my roommate for Christmas: Bizarre Books: A compendium of classic oddities by Russell Ash and Brian Lake. Includes (actual) book titles like: “Cancer: Is the dog the cause?” “Correct mispronunciations of some South Carolina names,” and the classic “Scouts in Bondage.”
