Winner of Oddest Title of the Year

A while back I blogged about the competition for Oddest Title of the Year and included the website address for people to vote for their favourite. And the winner is . . . What To Do With People Who Don't Know They're Dead. If you voted for this title, pat yourself on the backā€”it won by only two votes. It beat out Rhino Horn Stockpile Management: Minimum Standards and Best Practices from East and Southern Africa. The article about the competition results can be found here.
