banned books by thespice

Vote for the scrote!

In response to the children’s librarians who have refused to buy the 2006 Newbery winner for their collections because of the word scrotum, jbknowles suggests that we celebrate this very necessary and functional body part in a poem.

How appropriate, seeing as it’s Poetry Friday!

I was inspired thusly:

For the testes of male mammals,
It’s a handy sac to tote ’em.
For fluttery librarians,
The banned word (gasp!) is scrotum.
