Odd Titles

The Bookseller, a British trade magazine, awards an annual prize for the oddest title. The award is called the Diagram Prize and it was first given in 1978 to Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice.

Here are some other previous winners:
  • Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes
  • The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification
  • Bombproof Your Horse
  • Reusing Old Graves: A Report on Popular British Attitudes 
  • The Joy of Chickens
  • Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality
  • Natural Bust Enlargement with Total Power: How to Increase the other 90% of Your Mind to Increase the Size of Your Breasts    
So in the spirit of the Diagram Prize, I propose the following title for my book: The Happy Hippy Hepper: Health Tips for the Contented Beatnik with Hepatitis C
