…in the Target this afternoon, and I thought Hey, I need to get some more kids’ books. Then I remembered, Hey, wait, Jane Yolen absolutely hates it when us dirty, filthy conservatives read her books. So I picked up The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? (Pigeon) instead. Because I don’t really know what Mo Willems thinks of conservatives; but I do know that he has the mother-wit to not go around in public and call half the country church-burners.
Yes, yes, I’m a horrible person for pointing all of this out. People should so totally try to turn the Internet against me for this.
PS: I bring all of this up because… well, because I’m (hold on, let me transcribe my wife, here) “a partisan hack with a long memory and a taste for drinking the pain of weeping liberals*.” But the other reason why I’m bringing it up is to remind people that making things ‘go viral’ is hard work. Don’t believe people when they say that they have a foolproof method for easily doing it; trust me, if it was simple then people would do it every day.
*Yes. I am very lucky.
