Those are hilarious. Although, in all honesty, my favorite title ever is a serious one. I love it for the sheer audacity of the partial quote at the end: Louise Robbins' article "The Library of Congress and federal loyalty programs, 1947-1956: no "Communists or cocksuckers"". - Katy S
I love Louise! - Katy S
Should also see the winners of the ignobels given at harvard. I like the girl that says -- "I'm bored, I'm bored" to end the longer acceptance speeches. - Joe from iPod

I love Improbable, but it is designed to be funny. I am looking for serious papers in serious journals with funny, catchy, memorable titles. - Bora Zivkovic
ScienceDirect - Discrete Applied Mathematics : Recognizing DNA graphs is difficult [not hilarious, granted, but memorable!] - Chris Leonard
Those are funny, Andrew (and interesting papers) - Bora Zivkovic
