Awesome. Like the Bulwer-Lytton contest, but for the titles of real books.

How To Avoid Huge Ships is perhaps the classic of the genre. Somewhere I have a book full of these; A Popular History of British Seaweeds, Something New In Sandwiches, Why She Should Start Wearing a Bra: The Importance of the Bra for the Young Teenager, A History of the Canterbury Frozen Meat Company Limited, 1882-1957, and one of my favorites Understand Your Tortoise. You really have to go to England if you want to get crazy.

Here's a sailing forum where they start off ridiculing How to Avoid Huge Ships. Then they argue for 14 pages about how, exactly, to avoid huge ships. So I guess it's not all that obvious after all.

Managing a Dental Practice the Genghis Khan Way:
So, you get a few other dentists to work for you, establish one big mega-dental clinic, and become the most respected dentist in the land. Split up your clinic into four branches and have your four sons each manage one of them, but force them to share their patients so that the practice stays together more or less. Allow everything to go to hell after you die due to infighting over who gets which patients.
