The Importance of Cheese Containers of a Certain Dimension

Back in February I announced that the list was being narrowed in the process of naming the Oddest Book Title of the Year, in a contest sponsored by The Bookseller, a British magazine. The winner has been named, and I think you'll agree it's a worthy one. The oddest title has been determined to be The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-milligram Containers of Fromage Frais, a tasty volume published by Icon Group International. Yet, as distinguished as this title is, the decision to make it the winner could not have been an easy one when you consider the other finalists:

Baboon Metaphysics
Curbside Consultation of the Colon
Strip and Knit with Style
The Large Sieve and Its Applications
Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring
