It’s a Cheese! Oddest Book Title of the Year

March 26, 2009 § 3 Comments

t-fromage_fraisWe have a winner for the The Bookseller’s 2008 Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year: The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-milligram Containers of Fromage Frais. It was a strong win, gathering 32% of the 5000 votes.

Horace Bent, The Bookseller’s diarist and the custodian of the prize, said: “Given that three times in the 21st century the public have crowned somewhat vulgar titles the winner (High Performance Stiffened Structures, Living with Crazy Buttocks and, most recently, If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs), I assumed either Strip and Knit with Style or Curbside Consultation of the Colon would pick up the 2008 award. But I’m thrilled the public steered clear of smut and bestowed the ‘odd title’ prize on Professor Parker’s worthy winner.”

Congratulations to its author Professor Philip M Parker, with this fascinating caveat:  …”it was not produced not by a living author, but by Professor Philip M Parker’s automated authoring invention, which produces a title on the basis of complex internet and database searches.”
