My favorite is Scriblerian and the Kit-Cats.  Sounds like a 50's rock group.

SPUDMAN: voice of the potato industry.

Someone had fun with this title and it gave me a good laugh one day
several years ago.  Title has remained constant over the years and
select articles are now available online.  I don't know if Mr. or Mrs.
Potatohead ever posed for the cover though.

At the risk of starting up a frivolous and time-wasting thread, I
wonder if
we shouldn't consider instituting an award for Most Idiosyncratically
Charming Serial Title of All Time.  This thought occurred to me
after I encountered my personal favorite: The Progressive
(Are there reactionary fish-culturists?)

I'm sure someone out there has come across even better ones.  If so,
love to hear what they are.
