This has to be, without a doubt, the strangest book title I have ever heard.

I love when authors are great at being hilarious! If this really is as funny as everyone says then I am definitely going to have to give it a shot. I love Christopher Moore because he able to be hilarious and nonsensical but extremely enjoyable. This sounds like that kind of book!
All I need is a new book and a place to read it...

The book is on my reading list. His second book "The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden" just came out and I plan to read it as well.

Quirky, funny, and maddening all at the same time. Great choice :)
