That is a very hard one to beat, I agree. I Just had a look online, and found a really bad name for a children's book - 'Invisible Dick' by Frank Topham.
Another of my favourites is "How To Avoid Huge Ships".
There's actually a book that is a collection of weird titles inspired by that very book you mention. It's called 'How to Avoid Huge Ships: And Other Implausibly Titled Books'. Am hoping to grab a copy one day as I figure it will be good for some laughs.

There's actually a yearly prize called the Diagram Prize which is awarded to oddest book title of the year. It's always good for a laugh, as some of those titles are just too strange to believe. The most recent winner was apparently a book titled 'How to Poo on a Date'.
I never knew there was a trick to it!
I know it's trendy to hate Dan Brown--to the point where I'm almost embarrassed to do so publicly--but what I read of _Angels and Demons_ really made me want to throw the dang thing against the wall.

It's a shame, because Brown writes about topics I'm interested in, he just does so badly. And now he's spawned a spate of imitators. Ugh.
I completely read this wrong! I read "Worst BOOK of all time," not "Worst book TITLE of all time." Failure of reading comprehension!

I still stand by my Dan Brown loathing, though.

Lol. I feel much the same way about Dan Brown. I am interested in conspiracy theories and stuff but the Da Vinci Code was painful. So many innacuracies, the obvious plot twists, stupid characters who couldn't do their jobs (the cryptographer who can't guess the clue when the answer is HER OWN NAME), the hamfisted cliffhanger chapter endings...Ugh.
'The Affect of the Gamma Rays on the Man in the Moon Marigolds'!

Howzat?
