Oddest Book Title of the Year

Ran across a humorous article in the New York Times about the Diagram Prize for the oddest book titles of the year.

Sponsored by Bookseller Magazine, this year's prize goes to:
“The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-Milligram Containers of Fromage Frais.”
Previous winners include: “Curbside Consultation of the Colon,” “Reusing Old Graves,” and “How to Avoid Huge Ships.”

Maybe my own titles don't suck as bad as I think they do!

I actually like 'How to Avoid Huge Ships' - maybe I'm odd. :)

Nothing odd about it.

Before buying this book, I'd often lay awake nights strategizing ways to avoid them.

But thanks to this book, I'm back to leading semblance of a normal life.
