One thought on “Oddest Book Title of the Year

  1. I can’t think of any really odd titles in my library – but I voted for Curbside Consultation of the Colon. Intriguing (and icky) idea, if the colon they’re referring to is anatomical
    (didn’t Bill Safire once say he’d seen a sign that said “Eyes Examined While You Wait”?)
