lots of pussy talk
even though it’s about cats
it’s still way too much
In order to study up for the BookFest this weekend, I went out and bought some George Saunders books today. While I was at the store I picked up a board book for the wee-er one.
It’s called The Owl and the Pussy Cat. Verse is by Edward Lear. When I bought it, the title seemed giggle-worthy, but innocent enough. Right? Well, just wait…
Oh, and before I show you what I mean, I would also like to note that the address of the publishing company is 950 Stud Road.
OK. Here is what I just read to my daughter:
"The owl and the pussy cat went to sea. In a beautiful pea green boat. They took some honey, and plenty of money, wrapped up in a five-pound note. The owl looked up at the stars above, and sang to a small guitar, Oh, lovely pussy, oh pussy my love, what a beautiful pussy you are."
Not many things make me blush, you guys, but dude.
