Scrotum Scrotum Scrotum

Today's WTF comes from the "most emailed" story on the NY Times site regarding the uproar among some school librarians because an award-winning children's book properly uses the word "scrotum" to describe where a dog was bitten by a snake. The usual huff and puffery from uptight prudes has resulted in the book being banned by some school libraries.

Librarian Dana "Pee Pee" Nilsson says, "This book included what I call a Howard Stern-type shock treatment just to see how far they could push the envelope, but they didn’t have the children in mind. How very sad." Nilsson then excused herself to have a tinkle and powder her dirty pillows.
