A British magazine has announced its finalists for a bizarre book title competition. Contenders include "Estonian Sock Patterns All Around the World" and "Cooking with Poo."
Fortunately for aspiring chefs, the latter is a reference to the Thai word for 'crab', making it unlikely that "Edible Excrement" will be making an appearance on next year's list.
Other entries for The Bookseller's Diagram Prize include "A Century of Sand Dredging in the Bristol Channel: Volume Two," by Peter Grosson; "Estonian Sock Patterns All Around the World," by Aino Praakli; "The Great Singapore Penis Panic: And the Future of American Mass Hysteria," by Scott Mendelson, and "Mr. Andoh's Pennine Diary Memoirs of a Japanese Chicken Sexer in 1935 Hebden Bridge," by Stephen Curry and Takayoshi Andoh.
Don't even ask...
