Open And Shut Cache

Title Recital Is Absolutely Vital

A self-help guide called "If You Want Closure In Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs" has been voted the oddest book title of the year. It beat off stiff competition from another entitled "I Was Tortured By the Pygmy Love Queen" to win The Bookseller magazine's. The manual, whose author is named Big Boom, is described as a "self-help book, written by a man for the benefit of women".

FOOTNOTE: Enclose encounters.

I can see where the "self-help" bit comes from. I suppose if it was the other way round, i.e. written by a woman for the benefit of men it would have been aptly named "If you want closure in your relationship, start with your mouth".

No offence to all you lovely men out there of course!!!!!!!

HILARIOUS. And pun-meister, your "enclose encounters" is equally so.

Had to be written by a man! I like the title of the first one. ;0)

And I love Crystal's comment. No offence to all you lovely men of course!

And I'm sure he meant every word of that odd little title in his head...but I doubt his heart was in it...

Heh. Stiff competition? and the other one I won't say? You have no idea how much I needed a good laugh today.

No, had the book been written by a woman for a man it would read: If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Zipper.
