      Note to reader: This is an April Fools joke. For those of you who are
      unfamiliar with April Fools day, all the above titles are intended as a
      spoof. Any resemblance to genuine titles is strictly coincidental. I
      hope you enjoyed reading it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
      Special thanks to Andy Kerr for the graphics and concept, Michael Brown
      and John Cook for some of the titles and descriptions.
