One of the odder books on the market is "R.E.V.E.L.A.T.I.O.N.? Reality Expressed by Virtually Explicit and Lurid Acronyms of a Titillating Insightful and Offensive Nature" by Milt Pupique.
In the book, Pupique (a pseudonym) creates acrostic sentences. For instance, Fish Afterlife becomes "Fish's Lasting Unending Salvatory Heaven."

Enron accounting invades dating world
Women have a lot to worry about in the dating world and now pullmyfinger.com has added one more thing to be concerned about.
The site sells fake ATM receipts from Fidelity National Bank & Savings for $3.99 for a packet of 24. The receipts show a balance of $314,159.26 -- so clever, the beginning numbers of pi -- to impress women.
The site suggests men write their phone number on the ATM receipt and then give it to a prospective conquest.
"And watch how fast they call," it enthuses.
Nothing like a relationship founded on shady accounting.
SANTA FE, N.M. -- The Devil's Highway is no more.
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials has changed the number of U.S. 666 to U.S. 491, the New Mexico Highway and Transportation Department announced earlier this week.
Transportation officials from three states applied for a name change to the highway, which runs 194 miles from Gallup north through southwestern Colorado and west to Monticello, Utah.
In the Bible, the Book of Revelations says 666 is the "number of the beast," usually interpreted as Satan or the Antichrist, and the highway was often called "the Devil's Highway."
Highway and Transportation Secretary Rhonda Faught had said earlier this year that the number's "negative connotation" was one officials didn't want associated with the state because it discouraged tourism and area economic development.
