'I Was A Teenage Teenager'

Take a Break and Laugh Hysterically At These Witty Titles

Some people are just too funny. They stole all the humor, but we’re ok with it because they make us laugh. Hard. Some of these people include Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and well-known comedian, Jerry Seinfeld. But not all funny people wear capes, and by capes I mean they’re not famous.


We stumbled upon a treasure of comedic genius, ‘The Top Nineteen World’s Shortest Books’ from this site. The list includes titles of some books you can read within minutes, maybe even seconds. Some of our favorite titles include:


Things That Look Like An Apple, Taste Like An Apple, But Are Not An Apple (A… crabapple?) 


Honesty In The White House: 1969-1974 (precisely when Mr. Nixon was in office!)


Good English Cooking (Boiled potatoes anyone?)


Successful Experiments In Cohabitation With Piranhas (SCARED)


What To Do With Finger Paints (Use your toes and your nose)


According to the website, the top nineteen shortest books are (YOU MUST READ NUMBER 1):
