Bombproof Your Horse

April 4, 2010

You know how sometimes you find yourself just clicking on nonsense on the internet, wandering from one random link to the next, meandering through the maze of everything-under-the-sun on the web? Yeah, that's how I happened to find this: The World's 10 Oddest Book Titles. Mind you, I found more than one list of Oddest Books, but this one has some definite standouts. Some of them are almost intriguing enough to make me want to read them. I'll let you guess which ones...

1. Developments in Dairy Cow Breeding: New Opportunities to Widen the Use of Straw

2. Weeds in a Changing World

3. High Performance Stiffened Structures

4. Butterworths Corporate Manslaughter Service

5. Living With Crazy Buttocks

6. The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories

7. Bombproof Your Horse

8. People Who Don't Know They're Dead: How They Attach Themselves to Unsuspecting Bystanders and What to Do About It

9. The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification

10. If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs

**Don't you find it interesting that two of the books on this list feature horses?
