While we are on the subject of medical titles, how about JAMA?  Sounds like
something that pre-pubescent girls would wear at an overnight party.

        In addition to titles that are amusing in themselves, there can be
curious juxtapositions of titles -- as when "Flying safety" and
"Icarus"(an astronomy journal) happened into my office at the same time.

Peter named my all-time favorite:  Disease-a-Month.  We have a really
sick but funny sales line we put with it; Join the Disease-a-Month Club!
  Your first month you get measles, second you receive chicken pox, the
third you receive the disease of your choice! Two-for-one special
expires at the end of the month.  Family plans available.  Call
"YOU'REOUTOFYOURMIND" for more information.
Then there's  Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved
An innocent, respectable title EXCEPT most of our staff misreads the
title with a simple reading error.  They read   Journal of Health Care for
the Poor and UNDESERVING Whiplash is a common problem when working with
this journal.:)
