it features “sick and illegal behaviour and depicts it as humorous.”
So does this blog and no one in Canada is trying to ban it! Why Dave is allowed into Canada, ummm. Hmmm.

Has Dave ever been to Canada?

Fatherhood, fathers, get dumped on regularly. But DON'T DUMP ON MOTHERHOOD !

As a previously hopped on Pop I can sympathize.

One definition of the book banners should be a "type of person immune to argument and pursed at both ends of the digestive tract."

The Canadian version is " Chop on Pop " .

My son broke one of his dad's ribs when he hopped on pop a few years ago. It never occurred to me to sue the Dr. Seuss estate. I wonder if it's too late now? In my son's defense he did yell "Geronimo!" before he jumped off the couch and onto dad's chest.

Another Seuss book, "Hit Grandpa with a Bat", was, however, considered a little rough.

Better to ban the Butter Battle Book -- it encourages violence with dairy products.

Hopped on pop? Coke or Pepsi comes to mind

Libary? Is our Dave learnin'?
