If that's the case why was nobody complaining back then?

Those books were published decades ago when things were more tame then they are now.

Dr Obama has a new book coming out...lol...I said coming out....!!!!

It's called 'Ohhhhh The Places you Won't Go'...

You can get all hung up
We're a prickle-ly bunch.
you're party, they lost.
You'll be begging for lunch

I'm here in the perch
with my unpleasant bump.
took the home of the free,
and created a dump

So the next time you vote
you're not in for much fun.
cause Un-fu$&in@ yourself
is not easily done.

David Letterman had this on his show last night. Then he had the top 10 banned children books list

Well the story also talks about "RED NED TED and ED in BED" so THAT surely makes it suitable material for our liberal teaching institutions.

I'd have to agree with charlie. Some big overgrown step kids probably jumped him while he was asleep
