“The eagles who soar through the sky are at rest / And the creatures who crawl, run and creep. / I know you’re not thirsty. That’s bullshit. Stop lying. / Lie the f— down, my darling, and sleep.” Oh. My. God. Is this real?
No, not really. This bedtime story book is written for parents who have read one too many stories to their little kiddies. I have to admit, I think it’s pretty funny. Obviously, this is NOT a book that you would actually read to your children.
Novelist Adam Mansbach wrote this parody after his own daughter refused to go to bed one night. It has become virally popular on Amazon, after a PDF of the book was leaked online. The audio book is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, which is just too perfect.
Is this the funniest thing you’ve seen all day? Or do you think the author crossed the line?
