Fish Who Answer the Telephone and Other Bizarre Books by Russell Ash and Brian Lake

Synopsis:A uniquely funny and utterly original collection of the world’s weirdest and wackiest books.

the arts of Do-it-Yourself Coffins, Correctly English in 100 Days and Pranks with the Mouth

What’s Wrong With My Snake, Miss Smallwood’s Goodies and how to Play With Your Own Marbles

to Lake Tanganyika in a Bath Chair, Gay Bulgaria, On Sledge and Horseback to Outcast Siberian Lepers and The Planet of the Knob Heads

to The Adventures of Conrad the Cock, Tosser, Gunman and Shag the Caribou
Comments:Some of the titles listed in this book are absolutely hilarious. There are also some really funny author/title combinations that will crack you up, such as Oh! Sex Education! by Mary Breasted or Your Teeth by John Chipping. At the end there is a list of strange author names (seriously, why would you call your child ‘semen’?) that will have you shaking your head at the cruelty of parents.

I am making it my life challenge to obtain and release as many of these books as possible. This book is definitely worth reading and I would recommend purchasing a copy keep on your coffee table and show off to guests.
