Wry And Ironic Bibliographic Humor - For Children

My friend Matt runs a blog called "Rub-A-Dub". I really liked this post today:
I was looking at the Paidea Classics website today and saw a book title that cracked me up: "A History of the Church from Pentecost to the Council of Chalcedon - For Children". It was the "- For Children" that struck me as funny.

It got me thinking about other book titles that might be produced "- For Children"

9. Grain Production in Anatolia and the Stability of the Eastern Roman Empire - For Children

8. The Whore on the Altar: The Fourth Crusade - For Children

7. The River of Fire - For Children

6. Issues and Controversies Regarding the Dual Nature of Christ - For Children

5. Value: Price Stability and the Inflationary Practices of Central Banks - For Children

4. Ultrasound Process Control for Vulcanization and Polymerization of Organic Molecules - For Children

3. New Calendar/Old Calendar: The Controversy Explained - For Children
