Boy guys, can it get any worse. There is no regard for life anymore. Kudos to this Mom, she's got guts to stand her ground in this liberal State of Oregon.

Oregon mom won't return 'Bunny Suicide' book
by The Associated Press
Monday October 20, 2008, 5:54 AM
One way or another, a Halsey woman promises to keep a popular cartoon book out of the Central Linn High School library.

Taffey Anderson says "The Book of Bunny Suicides" is not appropriate for anyone, but especially children. She inspected the book her 13-year-old son checked out of the library, and what she saw convinced her to never return it.

The 2003 book by British author Andy Riley is a collection of cartoons showing a rabbit attempting to end his life in bizarre ways. Anderson's son told her he checked it out because his friends said it was funny.

"It is a comic book, but that's not funny. Not at all," Anderson told the Albany Democrat-Herald newspaper. "I don't care if your kid is 16, 17, 18. It's wrong."

Nobody's going to decide to kill themselves just because they read a book about bunnies killing themselves. If they try to, then there were other problems that need to be addressed immediately.

Ohshit, I guess I better tell my manager that we can't sell the 2009 Bunny Suicides calendar.

Screw you. It's funny to me; just because our senses of humour don't coincide doesn't mean that you have the right to try to deprive me of something harmlessly amusing.

Fuck you, bitch. I'm 42 and I'll read what I want. And at age 18, your kid is no longer a "kid". He is old enough to go to Iraq and get shot at.

The Bible expressly forbids bunnies to commit suicide.

Grow a sense of humour, woman!

Thou shalt not steal...unless it's something that you deem inapropriate, then it's just censorship for jeebus.

Thou shalt not kil...AW FUCK IT!

I kind of agree with her, that's not really appropriate for a school library. Still, stealing it is not the best response. Maybe talk to your children about why suicide isn't funny, or discuss your concerns with the school?
I know some people find it funny, but it doesn't seem like it's appropriate for a school. Just my opinion.

Isn't "boy guys" redundant?

And if Oregon is so liberal, why was gay marriage outlawed there?

"Taffey"? I'm having flashbacks to Female Trouble, here.

No. Suicide is serious when humans are considering it, are attempting it, or succeed.

Cartoon bunnies offing themselves IS funny.

If your child or you don't find it funny, don't open the damn book! And stop stealing from the library!!

Perhaps this woman should consult the 10 Commandments.

So you don't think your son should read it. Fine. What right do you have to keep it from others who are not forbade to read it?

Stealing for Jesus?

So the library will fine her the value of the book and buy another one. And another idiotic crusade has the opposite effect as was intended.

Oh, lighten the fuck up.

I agree it probably shouldn't be in a school library, but...violating the 8th commandment much?

Whatever you do, lady, don't watch Happy Tree Friends.

Just what a high school kid needs: a mom making a public jerk of herself.

You know, wouldn't it be better to talk to your kid about why the book will offend some people? That seems like less of a waste of time than getting up on a soap box and screeching until you're blue in the face.

She sounds like one of those indigent "soccer-moms" that march on Washington when they want to trample of freedom so they can "save the children."

Wow, that is the perfect way to get publicity for bunny suicides. :-D

Incidentally, your report makes me want to check out this book.

Isn't it illegal to refuse to return a book to the library?
