Every year, the British magazine Bookseller holds a competition for the oddest named book of the year. Librarians, publishers, and other people in book industries send in nominations and the public votes. Last year’s winner was If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start with Your Legs by Big Boom.

This year, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the award, instead of voting on titles of the past year the public voted for the oddest title from all the past winners. Today the winner was announced: the 1996 prize holder Greek Rural Postmen and Their Cancellation Numbers, edited by Derek Willan. Here is the BBC article about the prize winner, including a very funny rewritten introduction to the book. And here is the Wikipedia article on the history of the prize.

What would we do without British humor?
