NP I do love the title -- one of the best known around and wonderful book. I'm just sad about you not liking it....it's okay...different strokes and all that...

For poeticism, how about:

"Ameri-
can Heri-
tage Dic-
tionary"

Now I know why I've always liked saying that title out loud.

I think the two most striking titles of books I've read have been:

"I Been in Sorrow's Kitchen and Licked Out All the Pots"

"The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things"

I've never really thought about it before, but the first titles that come to mind are all classics:

The Hound of the Baskervilles
The War of the Worlds
Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea

Don't worry, you're not the only one.

Reminds me of the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry plays 'Chinese Whispers' with the children.

Good thread, though.

I suppose with my mind already following this train of thought, I might as well add Prick Up Your Ears, the biography of Joe Orton by John Lahr.

The thread about running out of shelf space and various solutions jogged my memory about this title of Anthony Powell's: Books Do Furnish a Room.
