After reading "Women on the move..." I decided the list could take
European Urology...

That reminds me of The Cooperative Accountant.  Are there any
uncooperative accountants?

Thank-you Rick, I am enjoying this thread (and appreciate the chance to
lighten up occasionally). My favourite title (since changed I think)
was: Education and Training in Mental Retardation. As one of my
colleagues said, some of our borrowers don't need training - they have a
natural aptitude!

While my library doesn't receive this title, I've always been found of
the journal of the National Hay Association which is called Hay There.

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.

Can't think of one offhand, although I thought that THE CRISIS was

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.
