Thought this one was interesting because they are starting to do prosthetics for dogs. I used to work with a vet that helped pioneer this, and helped take care of one of the first dog receipients of a prosthetic limb.

I've had similar things to that. Like these two for $15 each:

Online Bachelors Degrees
Accredited Bachelors Degrees Online (or something to that affect)

I also got $15 for explaining the difference between a visa and a passport.

This is great.

For maximum LOLz, note what category the title is under. DS's titles show up under infamously inappropriate categories.

I recall "How To Stop A Dog Barking" being under "Religion"; clearly some people's religious restrictions are very strict. By the time I stopped laughing, it was gone again.

Someone in the DS Forums Title Categorization thread, where this gets complained about, noticed "How To Make A Macrame Swing" showing up filed under "Music and Audio." "Yes," he quipped, "but can your macrame do the Lindy Hop?"

How to Create your Own Trash Cans

I claimed it, put the “trash cans” together and told how to buy a popcorn tin, eat the popcorn, clean the can and put a plastic bag in it. Very easy $15. I think I like some of these titles we make fun of. They’re funny but they’re also easy money. Can’t believe some of them but hey, as long as they keep the money coming in…
