Top Ten Tuesday, 9 August 2022

Topic: Hilarious Book Titles

I had fun listing 10 books for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. I haven’t read any of these books and I will never ever read them. Goodness gracious, how do authors decide on such names? Really!!

I have written a one-liner below each book title. I hope you enjoy my ‘opinions’ on judging a book by its title. 😉

#1: Toilet Paper Origami

“Delight your guests with fancy folds and simple surface embellishments.” Well, if you do not clean the toilet properly, your guests will find the ‘surface embellishments’ delightfully gross.

#2: Natural Bust Enlargement with Total Mind Power

Is this book better than Joseph Murphy’s Power of Your Subconscious Mind? I mean, if you read Power of your Subconscious Mind, you can certainly use mind power for all kinds of enlargements, constrictions and stuff, right?

Also, ‘How to use the other 90% of your mind to increase the size of your breasts” – does this mean the first 10% was spent in coming up with the book title? 😛

#3: Still Stripping after 25 years

“Still Stripping” is a collection of 12 quilt patterns, some traditional, some contemporary.

Disappointed, eh? 😉

#4: Eating People is Wrong

Yes, red meat is bad for health.

#5: How to Raise your IQ by Eating Gifted Children

I thought we had already discussed that Eating People is Wrong!


#6: Everything I know about Women, I learned from my Tractor

Sequel #1: I married my tractor and we are now proud parents to 10 lawn movers.

#Sequel #2: I divorced my wife (the tractor) due to incorrigible break fails.

#7: How you are like Shampoo

Anti-hairfall, anti-dandruff or frizz-control?

#8: How to Avoid Huge Ships

Simple. Don’t go near them!

#9: How to Good-bye Depression

Okay, nothing funny about the title. But have a look at the tag line. “If you constrict anus 100 times everyday…”

Constrict what now? If you are interested (not in constricting anus, but in reading the reviews), have a look at some of the interesting things that people (who probably read the book and found the constrictions useful) say about this book.

#10: You’re Sharp Enough to Be Your Own Surgeon

Yes!!! I am so sharp that not only am I my own surgeon but I can cut through diamonds, planets, universe… you name it, I cut it!

    1. 🤣🤣
      There was another book with a similar title. Still stripping after 28 years. Looks like many are interested in stripping. Haha 🤣🤣

  1. Some real gems in there, I wonder if they were all deliberate to catch people’s eye, although really evenif they did, would people read them? The quilting book I would, though.

    1. I have a love/hate relation with quilting. Procrastinated for long to try one and when I did, I didnt like it much 🤐

  2. Ahahah those sure are eye catching 🤣🤣 great marketing tool over there.. some I wonder where they got the idea from!

    1. Haha. I wonder who reads such books. I certainly wouldn’t read the anus constriction one. Good lordy! 🤣

  3. I am soooo intrigued by Toilet Paper Origami!! Is this a thing? like… should I learn?? I don’t think I want to but I kind of do? haha.

    1. Haha, you are the third person to have found toilet paper origami interesting 😁 I wonder if there is a whole set of craft based on the ‘toilet’ concept. Haha.

    1. Haha. Everybody seems to have their eyes on toilet paper origami. I wonder why. 😉
      You too have a great week. ❤

  4. Hilarious! And very, very strange! I mean, did people really publish these books???? (I’m guessing they’re all self-published, no? Gosh I hope so!)

    1. I really wonder how they thought of such a title. Also, do people read such books? I don’t think I would pick up a book with such a title, even for the sake of curiosity.
