It's the weirdness of it all, removing books including the Bible of course ... like this story which I'm sure caused a run for the books on Amazon, books most of us never knew about.
In Llano County, Texas, officials are being sued, accused of stripping books from public libraries because they disagree with the ideas in them, including Larry the Farting Leprechaun and, horrors, I Need a New Butt! the synopsis of which, I assume, brazenly displays the book's deviance from something?
"A silly story that will cause boys and girls to giggle from beginning to end!" A young boy suddenly notices a big problem: his butt has a huge crack! So he sets off to find a new one."
That rumor, way back, about Marian, Madam Librarian, comes to mind:
MAUD: Professor, her kind of woman doesn't belong on any committee. Of course I shouldn't tell you this but she advocates dirty books.
HAROLD: Dirty books?
I donno ... it just doesn't sound right when they put it like that?
Just like our childhood, it was the job of the parents to teach older children about sex.
However, our parents, or my parents, didn't and never would teach anything to do with sex to children under 10/11. And they didn't teach the child they could choose their sex.
My nephew is a homosexual and he is married to his mate. He was an adult when he made his choice. My sister didn't push anything on him. When we all get together for our family reunion, he is loved as much as all the family members are. More actually. He's my favorite nephew. :D
My sister did not and would not teach him sex education at 5.
Teachers in grammar school, especially, needs to get out of the pants of our children.
Jim Carrey? Now that is something I had not thought of, but it is a possibility? lol
More strange things we may not have thought of:
You've probably heard about the Alabama jailer taking off with a dangerous inmate, they're still looking for the pair. The Sheriff of the town said the two had a Special Relationship.
Another Special Relationship in the news is the one between Madison Caldwell and his 'scheduler' Stephen Smith who lives with him. They make a better looking couple then the Alabama pair.
Smith was seen on video groping Caldwell. There are screen shots of messages mentioning "Getting naked for me in Sweden," "The quickie at the airport" and "breaking and entering." Caldwell has been dismissing allegations as simply a way to tear into him and bring him down, he's just having fun with friends.
Another video showed up today apparently showing the two having fun in bed, nude, while the unidentified camera man is encouraging the pair, telling Caldwell where to put his ... junk. Caldwell does acknowledge the video is real.
You need to log in to twitter to see and hear the more explicit video due to adult content but I've excerpted a frame below.
Is that you David Attenborough?
I am very fortunate enough to be connected to a very talented producer and writer, and I asked her to organize a voiceover for a video of this R*ssian tank (for @saintjavelin) , and it made my day.

Louisiana's maternal mortality rate of 58.1 deaths per 100,000 births is the highest in the United States. But it seems we're looking at this all wrong, probably another one of those queer left-wing constructs. According to Louisiana Senators Bill Cassidy (R-LA) if you leave out Black mortality Louisiana is actually doing ok!
"So, when our population is adjusted for race, we’re not as unusual as we would look."
It's been 50 years but the photo is still seared in my mind. It's not in this essay. (Not sure you can read it without a NY Times sub.)
Napalm sticks to you, no matter how fast you run, causing horrific burns and pain that last a lifetime. I don’t remember running and screaming, “Nóng quá, nóng quá!” (“Too hot, too hot!”) But film footage and others’ memories show that I did.
