Fun For the Whole Family- Revisited

Awhile back ago I posted about the not-for-kids children's book Go the Fuck to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. It's finally out (#2 on Amazon's bestsellers list) and you can actually download the free version on Audible, read by Samuel L. Jackson. Or, you can go to YouTube and just listen to it- I'm sure it's perfectly legit. Nonetheless, it's hilarious, and despite the fact I am currently childless (because I've never given birth, not because I've lost my children...), I'm sure most parents can relate. The A.V. Club also has a quick write up in which they mention that somehow the book has been optioned by Fox. My favorite line has to be, "I know your not thirsty, that's bullshit, stop lying, lie the fuck down, my darling, and sleep" (Mansbach, 2011). I was invited to a baby shower that I can't attend next weekend (I actually have a legit excuse... seriously!) and am almost disappointed- I so could have brought this (and if people thought it wasn't funny I would have never been invited to another one- win/win)!

And yes, I realize this post is laden with parentheses. I like them (I think in asides).


  1. Wow that youtube video is HILAROUS! My hubby is going to love it.

  2. Ahhhh! I am so excited to pick up this book now. I have been anxiously awaiting since you first mentioned it!
