I'll pass on this one, thank you.

(On the copy editor forum on the website through which I do my online article editing, there are many funny running threads regarding titles not chosen to edit, often referred to as "10-foot-pole" titles. All articles have "Tips" and "Warnings" sections.)

It's not strictly a 10-foot-poler, but I'll stay clear of "How to Lose the Buttocks with Butt Exercises." I fear the article does not include Tips on how to retrieve your lost buttocks or a Warning about the dangers of life without them.
