Jess If any librarian wishes to remove some of the excessive "poo" books, feel free to do so. I get it, it's funny, but do there need to be so many of them?

message 18: by Keith (last edited May 26, 2016 12:31PM) (new)

Keith I decided to come up with some blurbs/plot summaries for a few of these:

-The Rave: A man gets over his existential depression by going to an underground club, taking some MDMA, dancing for twelve hours to sick Eurotrance beats, and making out with a woman he's never met before.
-Gertrude McFuzz and the Big Bra: A woman comes to terms with changes to her body after her first pregnancy.
-Magic Stud: Throbber Oakstaff is the most attractive young wizard at Midnight Orb Arcane College, and he takes full advantage of that fact during his first few months on campus. But then a succubus hits him with a paternity suit, elf triplets he bedded on consecutive nights destroy the Pyromancy Wing while fighting over him, and worst of all, his parents embarrass him when they come to visit. Could it be time to turn over a new leaf?
-The Tale of Peter Rabbi: A heart-wrenching story for children about a young rabbi who risks everything to save children from the Warsaw Ghetto.
-Alice in Tim: Alice asks Tim if he would be willing to try something special in the bedroom for International Women's Day
-The Potato Factor: In this exciting Cold War thriller presenting the conflict from the other side of the Iron Curtain, a Polish spy uncovers a plot to sabotage the Eastern Bloc's vodka supply.
-Show Jumping Tea: In a world where Britishness rules all, one woman dares to suggest a way to make the annual Royal Equestrian Display even more British...
-The Spy Who Loved M: James Bond has always had a secret he could never tell anyone. But now he dares to open his heart to the one who has always been there for him...
-The Secret Pear: In a world where fruit is reserved for the privileged few, one man dared to take a chance and defy the system...

Hahaha! So funny! You should do more of them.


message 20: by Keith (new)

Keith Ask and ye shall receive.

-Reaper Ma: A teenage girl discovers that her mother is actually the anthropomorphic personification of Death.
-Lady and the Tram: One woman's decade-long struggle to introduce affordable public transport to her home city.
-Time After Tim: After their breakup following a disastrous bedroom experiment (see Alice In Tim), Alice takes some time to put herself back together and learn to love again.
-Baa: Shocking body-horror tale of a man who begins turning into a sheep.
-Thunderwit: The story of a woman so funny, her jokes make people fall over and go deaf.
-How To Be Goo: A practical guide to shapeshifting magic.

-Clap Your Hand: A beginner's guide to Zen philosophy.


message 21: by Caroline (new)

Caroline Hilarious, Keith! I can hardly pick a favorite, but I think I'll go with "-Alice in Tim: Alice asks Tim if he would be willing to try something special in the bedroom for International Women's Day"

and "-Of Nightingales That Wee: A man is plagued by an army of small birds who keep urinating on his prized car."

:D


message 22: by Keith (last edited May 26, 2016 09:27AM) (new)

Keith Some more:

-The Communist Manifest: International Communism takes on an anthropomorphic personification in the form of a perky young woman who gets into a fiery love triangle with the manifestations of Authoritarianism (a dark and brooding bad boy who wears black leather) and Democratic Socialism (a sensitive New Man who wears cardigans and eats granola every morning). Which will she choose? And will the world survive?
-The Sigh: Introspective novel about a man who spends weeks trying to figure out what his girlfriend meant when she sighed at his suggestion that he quit his job and start an organic cork-burning business.
-Ribs: A Southern barbecue joint serves up the best ribs in America. No-one knows the secret of their recipe...but it surely couldn't be connected to all the disappearing homeless people in the area? Right?
-Beyond the Cod: With North Sea fish stocks dangerously depleted, a fish and chip shop in Aberdeen explores vegetarian menu options.
-Navy Bra: A US Navy seawoman designs more comfortable undergarments for her sisters in arms.

-Gertrude McFuzz and the Big Bra: A woman comes to terms with changes to her body after her first pregnancy.

Because it's so true! I just can't stop laughing :)


message 24: by Sharoza (new)

Sharoza I just removed four duplicates.
P.S. I had to bite my cheeks so hard, they are bleeding. All because I didn't want my mom to come into my room and see me rolling around on the floor like a lunatic.


message 25: by Keith (new)

Keith I'll keep making these until I run out of books or people stop finding them funny. :-D

-The Andalite's Gif: A member of an obscure religious sect creates an animated image and posts it on Tumblr, revolutionizing the online world with its memetic power...for about three days, until Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch appear in a movie together and everyone forgets about the Gif.
-Forrest Gum: Jim Forrest had a dream...a dream to create the world's best chewing gum. Because he believed in himself, and because he lived in America, he succeeded. But then his product became so successful that a Panama-based conglomerate mounted a hostile takeover and took the company from him, so he decided to become a Communist.
-Beware of Pit: A fascinating and hilarious book of photographs of grammatically incorrect road and warning signs around the world.
-Manifold: Tim: After a messy breakup (see Alice In Tim and Time After Tim), Tim decides to dedicate his life to science and makes a major breakthrough in the study of parallel universes.
-The Queen's Arm: A riding accident during a royal hunt leads to an international incident.
-The Silver Pea: A prankster paints a metal bead green and inserts it into a princess' lunch, causing her to break a tooth, which leads to an international incident. (Sequel to The Queen's Arm.)
-Red Rabbi: After being liberated from an extermination camp by the Red Army, a Polish rabbi dedicates his life to spreading Communism around the world.
-The Merry Adventures of Robin Hoo: An owl becomes an unlikely freedom fighter in 13th-century England.
-The Grass Dance: Evocative coming-of-age novel in which, one warm summer's night, a young man encounters a group of hippies who invite him to smoke marijuana with them and dance through the fields.
-A Killer Among U: Teenagers are murdered by a killer who hates the use of incorrect grammar in text messages.
-The Great God Pa: A man takes "Father knows best" to its logical conclusion in managing his household.

(No, I don't know why I keep coming up with ones about Communism.)

ROFL. These are hilarious. XD
I actually want to read the grammatically incorrect road signs one, and the Andalite's GIF. xD What about a Wrinkle in Tim? Is that when Tim actually finds the parallel universe?

Keith No, that's the one where Tim has to cope with reaching middle age. :-P

A KIller Among U was a good one, I'd just love a murder mystery story where the motive of the killer is just being a grammar nazi.

"What your going to kill me?"

"YOU'RE!"


message 29: by Rory (last edited Jun 01, 2016 01:08AM) (new)

Rory I've got a couple myself

The Sound and the Fur: A man who is obsessed with conspiracies about myths and legends goes on a quest to track down Bigfoot, only his plans take a different direction when he stumbles across a furry convention.

The Graveyard Boo: A playful ghost becomes aware of the internet and decides to create his own prank channel.

Far from the Madding Crow: An old woman decides to hatch a daring escape plan from the tyrannical nursing home she was sent to by her own children.

Gone with the Win: Two contestants on The Price is Right, after losing, decide to work up the courage and go on various heist missions.

Hope you like them.


message 30: by Keith (new)

Keith I like the concept of The Graveyard Boo - it sounds a bit like those assorted J-horror stories involving ghosts interacting with modern technology (Ringu, One Missed Call, etc.), but in a different genre.

Some more:

-The Women's Roo: A heartwarming tale about a group of women who adopt an orphaned kangaroo and teach it to kick misogynists in the groin.
-Angelfir: An angel is imprisoned in a fir tree by an evil sorceror and must convince a woodcutter's daughter to set it free.
-The Music Mag: Multi-generational epic about the rise and fall of a rock magazine.
-Storm Sire: A girl discovers that her father was a meteorological phenomenon.
-Mara, Daughter of the Nil: The daughter of the world's worst football player fights to redeem her father's reputation.

LOL YOU'RE!!

I have a few weird ones. No one's done these yet, have they?

Disturbed by Her Son - A woman struggles to relate to her distant son, who spends at least seven hours a day sniffing windows.

How I Escaped my Certain Fat - A recent liposuction patient travels across the country running from their fat, who is infuriated about its recent abandonment and possibly has murderous intentions. XD

Lol thanks. X) I think I've seen that movie. That movie could probably be a story on this list. Too bad there isn't a book version (that I know of...)


message 38: by Keith (new)

Keith I'm intrigued by the one about the son who keeps sniffing windows - what does he know that his mother doesn't?

Yet more:

-Squish Rabbi: Highly controversial novel about a Nazi officer hunting down his Jewish archnemesis.
-A Good Boy Is Hard To Fin: A comedic tale of romance and body modification among young merfolk.
-Egil's Sag: A Viking warrior must cope with weight gain and muscle loss as he enters middle age.
-Mirror Sigh: Contemporary novel about depression and body image.
-Tor: Atmospheric horror about murders taking place near Glastonbury.
-The Dancers At The End Of Tim: The final novel in the saga of Tim (see previous posts), as the successful scientist reflects on his life and experiences bizarre but beautiful hallucinations as he slips into death.
-Sheepish: Two Women, Fifty Sheep, and Enough Wool to Save the Plane: A pair of female aviation engineers mount a very strange operation to enable a damaged passenger aircraft to safely land.

ROFL. Egil's Sag, that is the best one. That's hilarious! XD

Duck! Rabbi! - A middle-aged rabbi fights to overcome his compulsion to throw heavy objects at townsfolk.

Dark of the Moo - A vampire cow contemplates his lonely and bitter existence after 300 years of having to feed on other cows.

Melissa I I can't believe I'm just now seeing this list for the first time! This is hilarious. Now I've gotta go look at all my shelves to see what I've got. Needed the laughs!

I won't mention (the full) titles, which was my reason for laughing :-) Just have a look and see for yourselves.
