That's Disgusting

I bought this children's book the other day at the store because it said it was authored by "Gervais" and I just assumed that Ricky Gervais had written another children's book. Turns out that he had nothing to do with this book, but I didn't regret the purchase after I got to this page:

Not everyone enjoys the humor, though.

I definitly enjoyed that humor. I want that book.

I'm glad you don't have kids because you have the oddest childrens book collection. This, the german "where do babies come", and i'm sure you have "everybody poops" somewhere...

No, but I do have Once Upon a Potty.

Ricky Gervais books may not be as obvious as putting a finger in your cat's butt, but it's still pretty disturbing stuff.

I read the Amazon Review by the uptight librarian, and then checked out her other helpful reviews - she doesn't like any books. She got very self righteous about Worchestershire sauce and the vegetarian cookbook. She needs to lighten up

Well but really - if you have ever been around a two year old, that picture would go from "disturbing" to "very common occurance". Funnier still - the look on the cat's face the first time it happens. (Serves the cat right for putting it out there....)

(Who puts two r's in occurrence anyways? It's redundant doncha think?)

No Dan, I have "Once upon a Potty".

Haha, that's hilarious. I'm totally getting one for myself. In fact, I think I'll put it on the coffee table right next to my Position of the Day Playbook.

I have "everybody poops" if you want it...My last kid is finally potty trained and would love to give it to Uncle Dan...The disturbing thing with this new book is what kind of hair is she stuffing her mouth with? Pervy and Gross!

The reviewer is more disturbed by the idea of the kid thinking about poking a cat in the but than she about the kid playing in the litter box? I think the reviewer is a little disturbing.

This book provides a good warning to kids. I have a friend who could have used a book like this. She blew in my brother's cat's butt and had to go to the ER the next when the resulting cat bite got infected.

What I find odd is this:

"What do customers ultimately buy after viewing items like this?

84% buy The Handmaid's Tale : A Novel by Margaret Atwood $10.74"

It's true though. That IS disgusting. And kids do disgusting things. So they sometimes need to be told not to stick their digits in a cat's ass. Otherwise they would. In fact, I know someone who's niece did in fact stick her finger in the cat's ass. If only she had this book...
Is it bad that I deleted my previous comment cause I had a typo? I have GOT to stop this OCD crap.

By Blogger Monkey, at 3:54 PM  

Yeah, I remember having to pull tinsel out of our cats ass every christmas because the little shit would eat it off the tree and after digesting it, a good 2-3 inches would hang out of its ass and really bug poor Estevez.. Man the look on that cats face was PRICELESS!

In the bathtub one, I think she is singing “And Barbie is swimming in the waterrrr then a big brown shark cameeee” /obscure.?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:26 PM  

To the Good Revrend--we call it "poop-on-a-rope" and it happens almost daily in our house as I have long hair and my cats feel the need to eat it.

I grew up with cats and never has it occured to me to either stick my finger up it's pooper OR blow in it. EWWW

There's another book by the same author entitled "That's Mean!" and it's almost as funny as the other one. Example page: Laughing at blind people? That's Mean!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 10:16 AM  

Dude, that is so creepy. Kind of reminds me of that Danish(not German as announced) children's book you posted once:

And what I've read in this threat ads to the 100,000 reasons why I'll never have a cat.

By Blogger Marshall, at 3:02 PM  

You need this one in your collection too Dan:

The Mole Who Knew it was None of His Business

The Basic plot is that someone poops on the mole's head, and he proceeds to conduct an investigation around the farm yard to find out who. Along the way we get to see comparisons between the shape of various animal poops, and the one that the mole is wearing as a beret. (It couldn't have been the horse, his poop is like round balls, etc.) My favorite part is his companions, two flies, which give him advice based on the TASTE of the various poops he encounters.

By Blogger Cully, at 8:39 PM  

Man! Cully beat me too it. As I was reading down the replies, I loaded a link to The Little Mole, ready to tell you to get it.

I love the little mole, and his poo-toupe!

Amusing, but 'It's disgusting'? So what? Look how HAPPY the little girl is to be playing with all that "cheap entertainment" -in every picture. If mum and dad spent more time with her maybe she wouldnt wipe her boogers on the curtains to get attention. Sticking your finger in a cat's butt is far more interactive than Playstation...And eating pubes will prepare her for those awkward moments later in life...
