Judging a book by its cover

Ok, after seeing these books I think it's sometimes right to judge a book by its cover. See if you can top these lame book covers:

@Robert Gentel,
I've heard of auto-urine therapy, but never came across any practitioners.

Found this one at a thrift store a few years ago and had to add it to the ironic decor of my grad school-era apartment:

This one's just plain funny (probably 'shopped though):

@Ticomaya,
That's hysterical! I assume you know that the author of that book has the most prestigious cook book awards named after him. The James Beard Foundation Awards. The Pulitzer Prize but for cookbooks.

I missed this the first time around. Wow, those first ones are colossally lame. Amazingly lame. Woefully lame.

"How to **** in the Woods" was a good book though! I've read it.

(Hey tsarstepan, good to see ya.)

@sozobe,
Bonjour sozobe!

I'm not sure what is more shameful being caught as one of the readers of these books or being the author of them?!

@sozobe,
I hear it's a very good book about wood and a worthy follow up to his "Understanding Wood", but still I snicker...
