Books adored by women
Your girlfriend, wife or woman you are about to conquer convinced you that “Fifty shades of gray” is a great book to read? Well, some guys tried it out, and the results were astonishing. Either they were completely disgusted or they become too mesmerized by the story.
Purify your body through fasting
Christians and other religions use fasting as a way to cleanse their bodies. Any animal food or alcohol are forbidden during this period. But how about if you see a guy carefully reading a book about fasting and meanwhile enjoying a large ham and bacon sandwich. He is clearly just informing himself since the fasting process has apparently not begun.
Signs of masculinity
We all know that size does matter, especially for the ego of men. So perhaps some titles are specially chosen for public reading. The ones involving the size of the penis might be a weird way of bragging in silence in a public space.
Michael Jackson fans
Michael Jackson is an artist that will never die, at least not in the mind of his fans. Although his face on the cover of a book about him can turn into your face if you are keeping that book to high.
How to catch some attention
Some titles have messages that are so out loud that you don’t even have to bother talking. Just pick that book up, and everybody will just stare at you. A title like “I love dick” cannot pass unnoticed, no matter how hard you try. It has glue for the eyes.
Physical resemblance to the book’s character
In some very weird situations, the reader has some features that look very much alike with the character depicted on the cover. So if they read the book with the cover up, it appears just like is the main character is sitting there and reading the story himself. A real cute situation.
Not so fun when the character is scary
Usually, horror books have scary characters on the cover. So the previous situation can turn into a horror movie scene if you replace your face with the cover of the book.
Too obvious is too much
Probably a hilarious situation is when a black guy is reading a book about “How to be Black”. Isn’t that something scripted in the gene pool? Or it is a metaphor for something else? Perhaps the guy feel strayed from his original roots and want to find his path back.
So if you really like reading books with awkward titles, try using a tablet or an e-reader. These are more intimate and not so obvious. Otherwise, you might be the next victim of these embarrassing situations.
