New 'Children's' Book: "Go The F*** To Sleep"

Post by Hellcat » Tue May 17, 2011 4:03 pm

See link for details. It's about a parent who wrote a rhyming book that pleads and curses with the child to go to sleep. It isn't really for children, but it still grabbed people's attention. (It certainly got mine!)

I got it through email last weekend. I thought it was a joke, a good one but still a joke. Having a 2 year old and a seven month old there was a manic-tinge to my laughter.

Works just as well for me. My husband has a narcoleptic sleep disorder. We need the "wake the f* up" sequel.

And apparently Samuel L Jackson will be giving his voice to the audio version. Is there anyone better suited?

Whoopi Goldberg would've also made a great narrator. :P
