2006.1004.1528::Ok, New Rule ($1 to Bill Maher)
Anytime some concerned parent wishes to ban some book because of some questionable content, the first thing school/state/library officials should ask is "Have you read the book?"

If the answer is "no," as it is so sadly often the case (or if subsequent quizzing on the content of said book reveals the answer "yes" as a lie), officials are then allowed to slap said parent upside the head and retort, "I'm sorry, I didn't realize that I was allowed to determine that you were a stupid, stupid assbag just by looking at you. Figuring out what is proper and improper for your child to read is not our fucking job. Any further appeal will be denied until you read the damned book. Get the fuck out."

I just read that Shel Silverstein's book, "Where the Sidewalk Ends" was requested to be removed from school libraries due to drawings featuring nudity and poems referencing cannibalism. Are you kidding me?? -PinkGator
