A Bedtime Story With A F**king Twist


When one hears the term “bedtime story,” chances are your mind immediately thinks of reading a short fable at the bedside of a small child... that may or may not do the somniferous trick. This particular evening tale fits that innocent image as well as Mother Goose in a porno.

It's “Goodnight Moon” gone dirty. Ah how cute. An adult bedtime story entitled "Go the F--- to Sleep." ABC Entertainment says the book is “done in the style of a toddler's bedtime story, but it is aimed at their exhausted parents who have suffered through sleepless nights with cranky little ones.”

The author, Adam Mansbach, is causing a big buzz in the world of novels with this dark-witted fiction that is riddled with profanity yet camouflaged with childlike pastel illustrations. Mansbach does however make it clear in the form of a disclaimer on the book's back cover that states it is not intended for children.

ABC released a sample verse lifted from the book:
"The cats nestle close to their kittens. The lambs have laid down with the sheep. You're cozy and warm in your bed, my dear. Please go the f--- to sleep."

So how are the actual sales going for "Go the F--- to Sleep?" How about f**king fantastic! The report went on to claim that “barely a month after it was sent to print in April, Mommy and parenting blogs were exploding with comments about it.” And get this stat! “The book also shot up to the top spot of Amazon's bestseller list -- several weeks before it's June 14 publication date.” A full interview with Mansbach airs tonight on “Nightline” on ABC at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT.

Personally, I think it is great. As adults, there is no reason we can't have a little fun in child-like environments but with the knowledge and experience that comes with being a grown up. It's like going back to the playground. Only this time you're no longer a virgin, you don't care if the kid next to you goes down the slide first, and you don't have to hold hands while you walk to the car that you can now drive your own ass home in.

Besides, I defy you to find me one sane adult that didn't want to see Barney the Dinosaur just once tell those kids, “No! I don't love you! I don't even know you! And it's hotter than hell jumping around in this stupid costume! Piss off!”
