I did a search for this one, but I couldn't find a thread for it.
Humorous Book Titles and author names; (if they were actually written).

40 Yards to the Latrine by Willy Makeit and Betty Wont
50 years in the saddle by Major Asburn

Are there any other ones?

My favorite book title, although it is one I have never actually found, is a book being read by Lenny Bruce on the cover of one of his Fantasy Records LP albums.

"Pigs Ate My Roses"

I love the title. Implied are a myriad of deep possibilities within and between those few words.

There's a whole book of these lurking in the shelves somewhere... I'll have to dig it out and look.

Got it... it's called 'Bizarre Books' by Russell Ash and Brian Lake, and it's actually a collection of real book titles (some pictured) that were really published and make no sense whatsoever.


'A Toddler's Guide to the Rubber Industry'. pub 1947.

'Fifty new Creative Poodle Grooming Styles' - pub 1981

'Organizing Deviance' by Joel Best and David F Luckenbill, pub 1982

to name but three.
