But...why was Where's Waldo, of all fucking things, banned? They didn't like funny little men in red stripes?
supposedly, in one of the books, there is a topless sunbather. how anyone noticed, or if she is really there, is beyong me.
Okay, I have a hard enough time trying to find Waldo, much less a topless sunbather.
some people have too much time and really dirty imaginations.

like the people who find the weird sex message in the Lion King and accuse the minister in Little Mermaid of having an erection.

people are so dirty minded. and then they throw a fit!
In defense of the Little Mermaid priest dude people...his "knee" is really disturbing. *cough*
ok, ill give you that one..but i couldnt think of another example. :)
*blink* Where's Waldo was banned?

I think I read a different Where's Waldo than they banned, 'cause if not, that's just ... silly. lol!!

I've only read a few that you haven't and you've read way more than me ... now I need to get to the library, too! Some of them just sound ... interesting.

Are these in order of the "banned"ness? Or random?
random, as far as i know.

and where's waldo..possible topless sunbather somewhere. dunno if its true..but there ya go.
there is a topless sunbather!! i had forgotten about that. she's on the beach and some kid had just put ice cream on her back and up she popped.

yes, as odd as it is, i remember this. it came out when i was a kid ... and it was a naked person. i was facinated by it. gimme a break! lol!
you mean its *true?!!*

hee!!
yep. it's trure. if we go to the bookstore when you come down this weekend, i'll look for it and show you. lol!
you know what, i think i remember that too...cuz i have ALL the where's waldo books unless they made new ones recently...
Stephen King's books are pretty fun if you like horror. And Jean M. Auel's books get dirty~
see, thats why none of those are bolded. i have read several Stephen King, but he just doesnt interest me.


and ive never even heard of Jean M . Auel before.
They're really thick. >.o The first in the series is Clan of the Cave Bear and the fifth came out about a year ago - Shelters of Stone.
oh, those. i have read Clan of the Cave Bear, but i got really bored. should i try it again? i was probably about 12 at the time...
You might try them again if you have some free time. I guess you have to be interested in that general time period, and there are pages that I would just flip past because all she did was describe the local vegetation. Seriously. But character wise, they are pretty good.
