When I started this blog up, oh say, about three and- a -half weeks ago, one of my first posts was about depressing books (Post #3: Feeling Happy? You Won’t if You Read These Books).
Keeping in the literary vein, I’ve decided to compile another list of books: Weird Books on Weird Topics.
These books aren’t depressing in the least. In fact, you should get a chuckle out of the titles. These are all published books. I haven’t made up any of them.
I got these odd titles from a couple of different books: The Lexicon of Stupidityby Ross and Kathryn Petras and The World’s Worstby Les Krantz and Sue Sveum.
Some, ahem, “educational” books you’ll never find in any classroom:
- The History and Romance of Elastic Webbing Since the Dawn of Time
- Highlights in the History of Concrete
- Teach Yourself Alcoholism
- Constipation and Our Civilization
- A Toddler’s Guide to the Rubber Industry
Some not so average do-it-yourself books:
- Let’s Make Some Undies!
- Do it Yourself Brain Surgery and Other Home Skills
- Grow Your Own Hair
- Natural Bust Enlargement with Total Mind Power: How to Use the Other 90% of Your Mind to Increase the Size of Your Breasts
Here’s a few interesting books on arts and entertainment:
- A Pictorial Book of Tongue Coating
- The Art of Faking Exhibition Poultry
- Be Bold With Bananas
- Entertaining With Insects: The Original Guide to Insect Cookery
Here are a few helpful titles concerning health and general well being:
- The Inheritance of Hairy Ear Rims
- Mucus and Related Topics
- Nasal Maintenance: Nursing Your Nose Through Troubled Times
- The Water of Life–A Treatise on Urine Therapy
Some books about holes, tapeworms and Jewish grandmothers:
- Big and Very Big Hole Drilling
- Reusing Old Graves
- New Guinea Tapeworms and Jewish Grandmothers
Here are couple of books about fun and recreation of different sort:
- Nuclear War Fun Book
- Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice
Here are a few books concerning love and relationships:
- Sex After Death
- Where Do Babies Come From and How to Keep Them There
- Wife Battering: A Systems Theory Approach
Well, that’s it. I hope you enjoyed reading these titles as much as I enjoyed writing them down.
Until next time!
