Lies to Tell Little Kids I went to a bookstore last night and was browsing when I found a book by Andy something-or-other called Lies to Tell Little Kids. I was angry! Then I opened the book...here's some of the things that I can remember... - All birds wear little parachutes just in case they forget how to fly. - A new sun goes over every day. See that hill? There's a bunch of old suns over that hill. When they cool, people cut them up into blocks and that's where we get margarine. - [kid looking into an empty bottle]. Dad tells him: You know, there used to be a ship in that bottle...but it sank. - If you say a prayer before you go to sleep, set up a rabbit trap...in the morning you'll have your own little angel to keep as a pet! - Scatter some tacks around an ant hill because they use them for umbrellas when it's raining. - Of course you didn't see any ghosts while we were back at the castle...they were all on their cigarette breaks! - Fish can send text messages...drop mommy's cell phone in the fish bowl and you'll see. - Clowns melt at 86-degrees. [shows a picture of a clown-puddle] - [Picture of a square] This square has a hidden fifth side that you can only see if you stare at it for a very, very, very long time... - All wind comes from wind farms. It's a cute book...of course, it's meant as humor. At the end of the book, the author tells you that it's not nice to fib. Check it out! Had me laughing.
