Get A Life

Fargo Jimmie tossed out a link to the Amazon page for the book from which his pint-sized moll is teaching herself to read.

The reviewer who took the opportunity to make snide remarks about The Hobbit was just being a butt-butt boy, but I really worry about the reviewer who found Are You My Mother? insensitive. I can think of no better fate than for her daughter, who resembles her more than a baby bird resembles a steam shovel, to save herself for marriage to a man of her own ethnicity and live happily ever after in a house with a white picket fence around it.

I love all of the books mentioned on that page. Especially Green Eggs and Ham, because it was the first book that I knew that had my name in it...
