    The Oddest Book Title Award Goes To...

    LONDON Good advice? Maybe. Oddest book title of 2007 that's official.
    "If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs" has won the Diagram Prize for the oddest title of the year, The Bookseller magazine announced Friday.
    Big Boom, the apparently pseudonymous author, calls it a "self-help book, written by a man for the benefit of women."
    It's a book, he writes, that is "raw, honest and about you," distilling "the sweat off my back, the wrinkles in my forehead from anger and thinking all the time."
    The title triumphed in a public vote over runner-up "I Was Tortured by the Pygmy Love Queen" and the third-place finisher, "Cheese Problems Solved."

    This flashed across the screen last night while we were having pizza with a large group of friends (and all the kiddos!) and I almost choked to death.

    Could I have sued Fox?

    What a great title. I wonder what the actual book is like.

    LoL I like it!!!!

    The title kind of reminds of the many pearls of wisdom that the elderly Fruitcake Lady would share on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

    Is it? I had heard that, but for some reason (don't know what) I was reluctant to read it.
    Are all his books good?

    The title is so self explanatory its probably equivalent to actually reading the book.
