Now, here is one sick, twisted read.
It's a children's picture book about a little caterpillar who eats a lot. It was allegedly banned in Herefordshire, England during a healthy eating campaign because it was believed that it promoted obesity and overeating.
See, when a kid has eight chins and gets winded just by pushing the buttons on his Ipod, , it's not because he's allowed to eat two happy meals in one sitting or because he puts butter on his sausage at IHOP.
It's because of that food obsessed psycho Eric Carle & his twisted butterfly fantasy. No wonder today's five-year-olds look like Mini-Coopers! We are a nation of emotional eaters and it all started with multi-legged brainwashing during circle time in "kinney-garden".
This bug must be stopped.
Now, I don't know for sure if the book was actually removed from the library. It seems that the story has been repeated often, even on information sites. So, forgive me for jumping the gun on this one- most of the other banned books on this blog come from multiple sources.
