105 Ways to Give a Book

The Pop-Up What?

This post couldn’t wait, and I can only hope that someone out there is reading.

I’m killing time at work today and looking over the 100 bestselling children’s books, something I do from time to time. When what do I see at on the Barnes and Noble children’s — now I said children’s — bestseller list? There at number 84 is The Pop-Up Kama Sutra: Six Paper-Engineered Variations. I am not sure which amuses me more, that The Pop-up Kama Sutra appeared on the children’s bestseller list or that there is a Pop-up Kama Sutra book in the first place. Not to mention the variations of puns and jokes on the words “pop-up” connected with the kama sutra.

In all good conscience, I alerted Barnes and Noble to the error before I thought about you, my dear readers, so if it is no longer there, I apologize. But it had to be done.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.

The mind boggles. "Oh, it's a pop-up book, so it's obviously for kids!" *snort*

You may have just earned my complete respect...
I really can't decide what is funnier. The sticker on the book cover advertising the engineering or the publisher referencing Bollywood.
They mean to tell me that with our space aged technology, micro-sized GPS chips, and rear implants they can only achieve 6 paper- engineering?
that's despicable :(
