Wow what have they done? Scribbled it out or removed whole pages?

FruStefanOla Mon 23-May-16 08:35:15


What's the book and how has the bad language been removed?

jaffacakesareevil Mon 23-May-16 08:35:39

How funny! How did they remove it?

MrsGradyOldLady Mon 23-May-16 08:36:29

Oh yes please tell us the name of the book too

TheHobbitMum Mon 23-May-16 08:37:21

Lol fantastic,

sockrage Mon 23-May-16 08:37:37

Every page containing swear words they have done this.

Crossed out whole word or the s from shit and so on

It is called The Three Day Rule
It's blurb is
'Well you know the saying, families are like fish. They go off after three days'.

So not an over offensive gang book or something

ollieplimsoles Mon 23-May-16 08:40:48

what a drag!

MrsGradyOldLady Mon 23-May-16 08:43:43

That's someone with way too much time on their hands!

MrsGradyOldLady Mon 23-May-16 08:44:39

They missed "bloody" out as well

TheJiminyConjecture Mon 23-May-16 08:44:58

I love this!

The idea that someone was happy enough to read it twice (presuming of course, that they didn't decide to start deleting the swear words immediately) but not happy for anyone else to, is brilliant!

I liked the invitation to "Enjoy ...". Couldn't work out whether it was PA 'Enjoy your filth, you dirty-minded bastard' or a genuine 'Please enjoy this novel now I have removed its rudeness'.

Lovewineandchocs Mon 23-May-16 08:47:55

I've read that one! Not good to censor it though, but I applaud the effort 😀

BitOutOfPractice Mon 23-May-16 08:50:12

That shows real comittment!

Blerg Mon 23-May-16 08:52:54

Wow! That looks like my MIL handwriting. She is quite anti-swearing but I can't see her doing this.

BoffinMum Mon 23-May-16 08:54:24

Good thing they aren't letting her loose on redacting MN. It would be one great black screen.

cdtaylornats Mon 23-May-16 08:55:13

Just edit in your head and add your preferred swear words back in.

MoonfaceAndSilky Mon 23-May-16 09:00:08

Oh how funny grin

corlan Mon 23-May-16 09:02:24

I think you need to reinstate all the swear words. If it's not clear what words were there, you could just make up some of your own.

eitak22 Mon 23-May-16 09:02:51

Haha someone clearly had too much time on their hands. Reminds me of the notes in textbooks which would send you all over the book to tell you off for wasting time.

IceMaiden73 Mon 23-May-16 09:08:30

How random !

AdoraBell Mon 23-May-16 09:08:55

The only reason I can't say it was my MIL is that is not her writing.

Hahahaha. Cheered me up on a Monday morning!! That must have taken ALOT of time and effort.
