36th annual Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title

How to Poo on a DateIt’s odd, it’s humorous, and it’s also a book of practical advice – How to Poo on a Date: The Lovers’ Guide to Toilet Etiquette has won this year’s Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title. It was my favourite choice from the shortlist (though not because I’m in particular need of the advice it offers, I might add). Previous titles from Mats & Enzo, How to Poo on HolidayHow to Poo at Work and How to Bonk at Work, were all previously nominated for the prize, and as they told The Bookseller, they are pleased to have finally won. The accolade of winning is the only prize they will receive, but I think that’s prize enough.

What are the oddest book titles that you have read? I recently spotted one called How to Knit with Dog Hair. Odd and humorous, yes. A book of practical advice? I don’t think so…
