Most of these make sense for the episode...nothing to outrageous or goofy.  There's one that took me a very long time to figure out its meaning because it didn't ring as to why it was titled this way easily like the rest of the titles:

"Strawberry Fayre" from Season 1

For us Americans, "fayre" is pronounced like "fair" and you buy and sell things, or barter in a fairground.  It didn't click to me right away that the "buying and selling" was of ideas and I don't think Strawberry in the episode was intentionally trying to sell the ideas in the Warren of Shining Wires, but Bigwig was about to take the bait.  In the end, Strawberry didn't want to be part of that bartering group of rabbits.

For reference, if you type "strawberry fayre" into google you get links for a song, businesses, and random posts about eating strawberries.  :p

For a long time I was reading that title as "Strawberry Fay-Rah" and I thought it was some reference to the Lapine language. :lol I'd probably die if I ever went to England.

^ Exactly my point.  It could've been titled Strawberry and that would've fit fine because the episode was about him.
