Default Children's Book Funny

I'm getting one of these books to read to my kids at night! (Warning, contains language. Don't click the link if language offends you.)

Wow... I couldn't imagine reading that to a child...

eta: and "language" does not offend me. I just believe that "type" of language has no place around children.

I hate the language (whether it's for kids OR adults), but I can definitely understand the author's frustration (some days more than others)!!

I was of course kidding. The book isn't really meant for children, and I'd never actually read it to a child.

Well you said you were going to read it to your kids at night, so I had to question if you would really read it to them? Anyways, I get it's supposed to be funny... My kid is 3 so I'd never read that book to him!

Sorry, I should have included a disclaimer. I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor, I guess that didn't come through.

I thought it was funny and understood your tongue in cheek humor. Some people take life way to seriously.

I sent the bookcover to my husband and he asked if this is something I was writing.

Unfortunately sarcasm doesn't come through the computer screen nearly as well as it does in person. I have the same issue sometimes different places.

Needless to say, I saw the book and just started howling. If you've met my 6 yr old DS, you would understand why I found it so amusing.

On a side note, one of my dcb's (2y 7mo) has learned a new word. He points at trucks (any size) and calls them fuks. Sometimes it comes out fruk. Some how I find that this book may not quite be suitable for him. LOL

Haha! Mine used to call frogs "focks". We have video of him saying that, pointing at a frog book, over and over and over while we crack up in the background. He MAY have been 15 months.

he went up to a booth and asked the nice lady for "co*k & candy" instead of cotton candy.

I love when little kids don't say things correctly...well they say them right but it sounds wrong! It is sooo cute!

When my DD was 3 she used to call my Brother-in-law Tim and his girlfriend Betsy, "Ugly Tim and Bitchy"
