AIBU to think this children's picture book is a bit rude and like a junior Jilly Cooper bonkfest or have I got a mucky mind?

We've had this book for yonks, is it just me who sees the horsey filth? wink

Dirty mind!

Oh, you filthy, nasty ArseClanger !

Touch the leathery boot. hmm

Before I opened the thread, I thought you may have been reading "Mummy laid an egg". It's a child's book on where babies come from, see attached photo. I bought it for my sons, but because of this bit,mum too embarrassed to show it to them.

Ha ha! We have Mummy Laid an Egg and we love it!
The leathery boot touching suggestion made me shudder in a bad way and the photo of the crop, hat and wellies looks like it should have a couple romping next to it.

Yes we had that ...I could never read 'touch the leathery boot' without feeling grubby

I find the last line of the blurb rather disturbing as well.

Touch my leathery boot kids! shock

reminds me of an accidental piece of filth DD brought home as homework when she was was all about measuring and there was a clip art on the worksheet of a cartoon man measuring his dick!

It was tiny and the somewhat elderly teacher probably thought he was just admiring his long yardstick! grin

We never told her.

I have just got a 'Felty Flaps' book out of the library for DD. I sniggered like a schoolkid.

That is perfect Spiderlight grin

I once borrowed a picture book from the library about jobs and the caption for the builder was "let's get busy". I peed myself a little.

We've got "this is not my train". One page references a rusty funnel, which I actually looked up on urban dictionary and then regretted shock

MyCarHasBrokenDownAgain Tue 20-Jan-15 18:57:52

Look at the 'nose' on this one! Can't remember what the book was called, but I swear the artist must have had money on whether he'd sneak this past the editors! grin

plantsitter Tue 20-Jan-15 19:05:06

I must say I had to give this one a double-take when I saw it in the library? Is it just me?

MyCarHasBrokenDownAgain Tue 20-Jan-15 19:13:58

Pingu anyone?! grin grin

MyCarHasBrokenDownAgain Tue 20-Jan-15 19:17:58

Rainicorn I am so glad you posted that! I'm sure we brought that for DH's nephew's birthday to teach him about the 'birds and the bees'. He was 16 at the time (and already very popular with the girls) - he bloody LOVED it!

DP was reading 'the tiger who came to tea' with DS once, a book I had read to him and my class many times.

He said "it can't be the milkman, because he came this morning. It can't be the...... My, mummy has a lot of male friends coming doesn't she?"

Ruined the entire book for me

Reminds me of this page

I want to shower you with sugar lumps
and ride you over fences
polish your hooves every single day
and take you to the horse dentist

My lovely, lovely, lovely horse...

I take great delight for buying "mummy lays an egg" for friends expecting DC2.

And no..I don't warn them!

FailOfTheCentury Tue 20-Jan-15 19:57:41

I am primarily offended by the missing apostrophe.

FailOfTheCentury Tue 20-Jan-15 20:06:33

Oops; forgot my winky face.

wink <--------

Just in case anyone thought I was getting frothy over a picture book. I might be.

Minty82 Tue 20-Jan-15 20:12:26

Fail - I was about to say exactly the same thing! How did that make it to the printers?!

QueenArseClangers Tue 20-Jan-15 20:20:17

Yer all dirty caaahhhs and I luffs you all grin
