Free Government Information (FGI) has compiled a list of silly titles of government documents. The list based on an exchange among GovDoc-L subscribers.
Some of my favorites are (title followed by SuDoc number and link to find in a local library):
- Fertilizers in a national emergency
A 1.6:966 Find in a library
- The golden age of bathing
