  • *Giggle* Somethings just reduce me to the mental level of a 8 year old kid and that is apparently one of them.

    Just for future reference when Braden is older and you decide to read Babe the Pig to him, you should know that it refers to the female dog as the bitch all the way through the book. Now I pre-read all the books BEFORE starting to read them out loud to 4 boys. That was a long ass book!

    hahahahahaha, made me laugh and now my four year old keeps asking me why I was laughing. I used to live in the UK for a few years and believe me, I just couldn’t get used to it (let alone using the word cock in public without having at least a smirk on my face)

  • *giggle* I don’t think I could read that without giggling every time.

    Awesome. I’m getting that book.

  • Too funny. But why does everything else have an illustration while COCK is just blaring? It seems to me the author of the book was maybe throwing a bone out to the parents. Haha.. bone! Get it? Yeah…

  • Hahaha! Cock.

    I love that we are all so mature. We have books at our house with both questionable wording and pictures that make my husband and I look at each other and giggle like little kids.

    Good stuff.

    You are probably more mature than me. I can’t even say the word “caulk” without giggling…

    March 03, 2010
  • Yep…. I so agree with you on this post…. That is just NOT a word for a mom to read. LOL. I would be changing it to Rooster, except my 4 yo can read and would bust me! Dont authors read this to themselves, alone at night with a glass (or three) of wine to see how the book would be read by a tired mom.

    I am so, so glad that I’m not the only one who thinks of Dolly’s… attributes… when I receive her books in the mail. I love the reading program! I love Dolly! I just… giggle a little, inside. Thanks for making me feel normal!

  • This is the second blog post I’ve read today about the C word that’s not really the C word. How unbelievably funny, weird, and strange all at the same time. Just Another Mommy Blog wrote about her kids and their Chinese animal designations. One of them is…well, you know. I thought that post was as funny as this one. Thanks for my second C-laugh of the day.

  • I came across a book like that whilst reading to the fours I teach I had to say rooster instead of cock cause I just couldn’t say cock to a room full of four year olds. I would have been laughing and they would not have gotten it or worse they would have.

    March 03, 2010
  • haha…puts me in mind of the trouble I have reading “The Runaway Bunny” by Margaret Wise Brown to my little guy. I totally crack up *every single time* that I get to the line “If you become the wind and blow me…”

  • There are lots of hidden meanings in children’s books, this one isn’t so subtle….

  • Hehehe – when I subbed for a 5th grade class years ago I said “wood” (totally seriously in some serious way) and one of the little boys in the back busted out laughing…the farmer in your story could also have some wood…just saying. Gay dude tokin’ a fag by his cock with some wood.

  • Haha hilarious. In middle school, I had to help elementary schoolers with their reading. They had this ancient book about animals that had the word “bitch” for a female dog. Because, yeah, that’s what it is. But seriously. I’m sure even back in the 50s it had an alternate meaning. My 7th grade self was beside herself. As was, I’m sure, every other middle schooler who had ran across that. Also: my kiddo has a book that refers to cats as “pussies”. I mean, are editors just old as dirt or does this stuff really seem ok to them?
