    First I am a huge Samuel L Jackson fan.
    2ndly anything that is out of the norm I find funny.
    If you are in a place and do a little reserach with head phones on look up
    Samuel L Jackson reads
    Go The Fuck to Sleep.
    It's an Adults bedtime story of sorts.
    I caught it on you-tube. What caught me was the comments. These people actually thought this was supposed to be read to children. Really? Seriously folks.
    I've decided that most of America has a stick shoved so far up their ass that in December they should wear Angles as hats!
    Check out the you tube and tell me if it didn't make your day.

    The ONLY reason that book became a best seller is because the word "FUCK" is in the title. And the ONLY reason the "Shit my Dad Says" book became a best seller and (now ended) TV series, is because the word "SHIT" was in the title.

    It seems these days if you want your SHIT to sell, put the word Shit or Fuck in the title.

    People thought it was a children's story book because of the way it's been presented. It does send a mixed message on that front but any adult with a hint of common sense would know that it's not for kids (it has the word fuck in it, uh duh) but conservatives love to complain and they get heard because they are vocally active. I like the idea of the book and can understand the sentiment. I'd give it to my kid (if I had any) when they are older to get them to understand what I went though icon_smile.gif

    I agree with Wrestlervic, and it seems to make an impact these days you have to have that ridiculous shock factor (Harry Potter being the exception but the wizards and spells did have a bit on controversy too).

    This is just funny - don't listen if you're offended - and it's not just the fact it has fuck in it, it's the context and the fact that it's Samual L Jackson...
