Writing about the bleeding obvious

I went to the bookstore today with my friend and her two teenage sons (that was an adventure and a half.) Among the books we saw: a children's book called - and I am not making this up - "What's In Your Diaper?"

Seriously? Do we really need to write about the bleeding obvious? Is the target market for the folks who did not show their kids the book "Everybody Poops"?

If so, Mr. RK and I came up with some alternate ideas:

"Where Does Penis Go?" (A picture book - "Penis went here.")

"Who is the office jerk?"

"What did that bird do to my car?"

"What's in your litter box?"

"What happens when the condom breaks?"

"My claws, your face: ways that pets say, 'No!'"

"There's Waldo."

"Boobs are not an etch-a-sketch: a sexual primer." Mr. RK suggested this, but from what I hear, that may not be totally obvious to most of the heterosexual male population.

So how about it? What would your suggestions be?

"My claws, your face: ways that pets say, 'No'!"

Hahaha! Priceless.

Penis Goes Here. Yeah, I think that's a real book. My brother has a pop-up Kama Sutra. It's basically the same thing as your idea.

I always just got a kick out of "Everybody Poops."

"Nobody Doesn't Poop."

"Only Some People Poop. Just Kidding, Everybody Does."

"10 out of 10 People Surveyed Said They Poop."

The pedal on the right makes the car go. The pedal on the left makes it stop. The wheel turns it right or left. That is the information. Here is the title.

Riot Kitty and Mr. R.K., kudos to you both. There is no way I could make a suggestion that could top any of those. LOL

Haha! Love it -- ""My claws, your face: ways that pets say, 'No!'" may be my fav.

Riot Kitty said...

G: Glad it made you laugh! Don't worry, I'm sure you'll come up with plenty of stuff.
John: Great, I'll start writing.
DC: And the most realistic...

Riot Kitty said...

Oops! Didn't see your comment at first, GA - I am sure you could if you put your mind to it ;)

You're both creative geniuses and I can see why you fell in love with each other. Great minds think alike.

I'd definitely buy the penis book.

My suggestion: "What Got in My Pants?: A One-Night Stand Story"

Riot Kitty said...

S: OMFG! GREAT book idea!!

Workingdan said...

It seems my creative juices are running low...I got nothing. Your ideas are great!

I would love to see a copy of "Where does penis go?" Although, depending on the author, this could be confusing because they may illustrate more than one place where it could go...and that would get disgusting!

Riot Kitty said...

WD: So would I! But yeah...good point.
