Nisha Ok, how do people even publish some of these titles?

Well, I think the more important question is this--who's buying these titles?

I do have to admit that I've read four of the books on this list.

Very true. I would be very embarrassed to be see standing next to these titles, let alone buying them.

Now, how exactly did you end up reading 4 of these books? ebooks? ok, some of them are not THAT bad.




message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Well, I read the C.S. Lewis and Dr. Seuss books. Those titles aren't bad unless you have a dirty mind. *grin* I didn't even think about Devon Cream sounding risque. There's no excuse for my reading Sex with Lex. All I can say is that I'm glad it was in ebook!

Well, my granddaughter showed up with the "Cunt Coloring Book" two weeks ago.

She's 22 and very bright. I have heard that this is a favorite among lesbians, as a liberation thing, like "The Vagina Monologues", perhaps.....I believe the "C-word" as Dr. Phil calls it, does not raise hackles in the UK as it does here in the states. Have more than once heard "cunt struck" in British films used where we would say "love struck". George Carlin, thou art mighty yet !

Thom Dunn NOT FOUND:

Lust Farm
Tower of the Screaming Virgins




message 9: by Anum (new)

Anum This is by far the most entertaining thing that I have ever read. I mean, honestly, I think I almost died from laughter!!!

Elaine Where is Dykes to Watch Out For? It's got to be on this list. Unfortunately, I'm too embarrassed to put it on there myself. :-)

All of these pale in comparison to The Baby Jesus Butt Plug. I can certainly see why that one tops the list.

Rock Angel Mental Floss collected a list of Parodies of Notable Self-Help Books:

I'm reading a book right now just because it has a really, really terrible cover image. Only reason.

It's fun just going through the titles on this list, even when you haven't read them. Especially the top ten or so :-) I'm guessing it will be a complete waste of money buying any of them, but they sure made me laugh.

The Horse and His Boy brought a smile to my face, as I own a Dutch translation (and it gave me a title to vote for...).


message 26: by Francesca (new)

Francesca I'm actually crying with laughter at these names! This list is hilarious!


message 27: by Sorobai (new)

Sorobai Why do I never find such funny titles on bookstores!

Talking about having a dirty mind.... Just have a look at Book Title or Bad Porno?! The titles on this list just never occurred to me 🙂
