“I know nothing about racing and any money I put on a horse is a sort of insurance policy to prevent it winning.” – Frank Richardson
While at the track in Hot Springs, Arkansas, my racing experience is a lot like Mr. Richardson’s in the above quote. I’m sure my poor results are due to my unscientific method of trying to pick a winner. I don't see the point of betting on a ‘sure thing.’ My strategy is to place money on the long shot with the best or funniest name. So today, while I’m off deciding which horse to ‘insure,’ I’ll leave you with my list of ten funny book titles for you to pick a winner. Bear in mind that these are actual books:
If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?! by Cynthia Heimel
When Your Phone Doesn't Ring, It'll Be Me by Cynthia Heimel
Get Your Tongue Out of My Mouth, I’m Kissing You Goodbye by Cynthia Heimel
Babies and Other Hazards of Sex: How to Make a Tiny Person in Only 9 Months, with Tools You Probably Have around the Home by Dave Barry
Things I Heard While Talking To Myself by Alan Alda
The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler
Belle Weather: Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Scattered Hissy Fits by Celia Rivenbark
Napoleon's Privates: 2,500 Years of History Unzipped by Tony Perrottet
Life Doesn't Begin 5 Pounds from Now by Jessica Weiner
Is This Thing On?: A Computer Handbook for Late Bloomers, Technophobes, and the Kicking & Screaming by Stokes, Abby, Sloan, Michael, Yule, Hunt
I selected these ten after visiting laughitout.com, edclibrary.com, and Readers Digest.com. It was difficult to pick only ten, so if you’d like to read more funny titles, drop by those sites.
Which title is your favorite? Or, do you have a funny book title that you’d like to add to the list?
Thanks for stopping by.
