Top 10 Most Inappropriate Kids Books

By Leanne Shirtliffe

If your children delight in frisbeeing their books around the living room, leaving you stuck picking up the entire works of Dr. Seuss and Sandra Boynton, here's a guaranteed way to spice up that chore.

Once your kids are asleep, convince your spouse to help you clean up. Then take a book and add the phrase "if you know what I mean" to the end of the title. So if you happen to grab Maurice Sendak's classic picture book, it becomes Where the Wild Things Are, if you know what I mean.

These six seemingly innocuous words were originally made popular by Drew Carey's old improv show, Whose Line Is It Anyway? But they haven't been added to children's literature. Until now.

Here are 10 titles of kids' books rendered inappropriate by the addition of "if you know what I mean."

1. There's a Wocket in My Pocket, if you know what I mean
2. Hop on Pop, if you know what I mean
3. Oh, the Places You'll Go, if you know what I mean
4. The Very Hungry Caterpillar, if you know what I mean
5. Pat the Bunny, if you know what I mean
6. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, if you know what I mean
7. The Little Engine That Could, if you know what I mean
8. Pajama Time, if you know what I mean
9. Sharks and Other Creatures of the Deep, if you know what I mean
10. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, if you know what I mean

Go ahead and have fun trying adding an inappropriate innuendo to your kid's favorite books. How 'bout Harry the Dirty Dog...if you know what I mean!
