Titles, Odd.

A British publishing industry trade magazine lists the ten oddest titles of the year:
  • "Tattooed Mountain Women and Spoon Boxes of Daghestan"
  • "How Green Were the Nazis?"
  • "D. Di Mascio's Delicious Ice Cream: D. Di Mascio of Coventry--An Ice Cream Company of Repute, with an Interesting and Varied Fleet of Ice Cream Vans"
  • "The Stray Shopping Carts of Eastern North America: A Guide to Field Identification"
  • "Proceedings of the Eighteenth International Seaweed Symposium"
  • "Better Never to Have Been: The Harm of Coming Into Existence"
Yes, that last is an apparently serious moral-philosophical argument for the extinction of the human race (or of any particular human being).
