25 Of The Strangest Books Ever Published

New Radiation

New Radiation

What happened to the old one? Why did it need to be updated?

Of course, you'll be pleased to know that back in the day, "radiation" referred to the method of cooking (a type of gas cooker). Did that ruin it a bit for you?

How To Be Pope

How To Be Pope

If this is an instructional manual then it has a pretty narrow audience, right?

Or perhaps it's a tour guide as though you're the Pope... ruined it again!



Gnome Attacks

Gnome Attacks

The author was either extremely paranoid at the hands of illicit substances or this is one of those cute, comedic titles that has only a distant relationship to the actual content of the book.

Make That Extra

Make That Extra

Hey, we've all felt like that from time to time and, according to Breaking Bad, this is actually possible without a book. What I find curious about this is the misspelling of the word "disappear"....



Not An Old Dog Then?

Not An Old Dog Then?

Just casually teaching physics to a dog (with the aid of a book). No biggie.

What concerns me most is what the author thought would be the benefit of teaching physics to a dog.

I Really Only Need One

I Really Only Need One

What they really should have titled this book is 301 Ways To Not Have A Girlfriend This Time Tomorrow.



DPRK

DPRK

The only way I'd be interested in this book is if they released a North Korean edition. Presumably, it involves some help from Russia, right?

Prepare For The Worst

Prepare For The Worst

At its very essence, this book's title renders it useless in that, all you really need to do to qualify as a widow is have a dead husband. But assuming that it's written for dudes who know they're going to die, it seems to be marketed at those who are too proud to bear the thought of their wife remarrying. Or am I reading too much in to it?

Maybe I should just get in on Kindle and find out.



The Best Fences

The Best Fences

What do you get the fence enthusiast who has everything?

Lives Lost And Saved

Lives Lost And Saved

When one considers all of the atrocities committed under the swastika banner, I hardly think that being environmentally conscious makes up for it. But hey, surprise me. Maybe they will end up saving more lives than they ended if this becomes a text book for saving our planet.



Who Cares?

Who Cares?

Strangely enough, I think most of us do in some way or another, and yet none of us (aside from the author and their immediate family perhaps) cares about this book.

Are You Sure It's Different?

Are You Sure It's Different?

Wait, is there a different way to do it than you might normally. I know that love and related matters have chemical reactions in your brain but what I didn't know was that these chemical reactions could also occur in your bowels. I mean, it's gotta be just sitting on the toilet and letting it come out, like normal, right?

Maybe I should read the book...



My Horse Already Is Bombproof

My Horse Already Is Bombproof

Dude, my horse is bombproof already!

...Or it would be if I had a horse. I wouldn't be buying me no pussy horse!

No They Can't

No They Can't

If you need to read this book it will never, ever happen.

Ever. Probably. I mean, I haven't read the book. But probably.



Target Audience?

Target Audience?

Has anybody reading this ever had an idea for a book and thought "people would really want to read this. I should write a book", but then told that idea to a friend who told you that it perhaps isn't as good of an idea as you first thought it would be?

Well, the author of this book is proof of the fact that you can write a book about whatever you damn well please and somebody will publish it. It's either inspirational in that regard, or demoralizing for those who've tried to write a book but been knocked back so many times by publishers that they gave up.

Find a unique subject is perhaps the lesson we should be taking away from all of this.

Do-It-Yourself

Do-It-Yourself

I like anything that's do-it-yourself, but mostly only because it's an enjoyable minefield of innuendo and euphemisms. Necrophilia is not my scene, however...



Calling Crazy Cat Ladies

Calling Crazy Cat Ladies

This one is a little like bestiality porn in that, the scariest thing is not the product itself, but that a market even exists.

The One-Page Book

The One-Page Book

How is this a book? What's on the second page? Is a book with only one page still considered to be a book? These are just some of the questions I'll never have answers to because I know I will never have the desire to read it.



How Many?!

How Many?!

Okay, so you can use it as a knitting aid. That's one. I guess you've got a few days immediately following its death where you could throw it for the dog to retrieve. That's two. There's 99 more!! How?!

Under My Pants

Under My Pants

I guess they just take you on a 200-page journey to finally reveal that the answer is "China".



Mole Catching: The Book

Mole Catching: The Book

For those days when it's a nice day out and you just happen to be the weirdest person anybody in your town has ever met.

Call me when they make it in to a movie.

Seriously?

Seriously?

How tedious would this book be to actually sit down and read?!

Answer: slightly less tedious than it was for Edwin F Holmes to write.



You Big Stud

You Big Stud

Probably one of the more practical books on this list but if you choose to be slightly immature and/or ignorant about it, it is kind of funny....

Animals and Rocks. Whatever....

Animals and Rocks. Whatever....

Everybody needs a hobby, right?



Avoiding Ships

Avoiding Ships

Chapter 1: Don't be in the ocean

Chapter 2: If you have to be on the water, don't be enough of an idiot to stray in to a shipping lane if you have no business being there.

Chapter 3: Any questions?

Chapter 4: Did anybody bring coffee and biscuits?

THE END.
