There are few magazines better to take on a plane or have in the powder room than Mental Floss, and it’s a must-visit website as well.  Speaking of powder rooms, here are some of the titles in its “23 Weird Books That Really Exist” column, which noted that the annual Diagram Prize for oddest book title was recently awarded to How to Poo on a Date: The Lovers’ Guide to Toilet Etiquette

There’s also—

• Bombproof Your Horse

* How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack

• Knitting with Dog Hair

We promise that the 19 others go the distance in proving that truth is much stranger than fiction.

    If you know what bombproofing your horse means, you would not find it a weird title. A bombproof horse means a horse you can ride on a trail and it won’t freak out if a butterfly or a leaf breezes by. Even a bombproof horse will probably freak out if a hornet stings it or a deer jumps in front of it.
