via bookshelves of doom:
Josie Bisset, from Melrose Place fame, has written a children’s book. You know, because anyone can. It’s called Tickle Monster. Okay, nothing inherently wrong so far. It’s about a monster from outer space who brings joys the world over by tickling kids. A tad creepy, sure. But I’m willing to keep an open mind. Then I read some excerpts from the sneak preview on her website. Take a gander:
“I just need a moment, as a matter of factly*.

It’s time to tickle your………….. (turn the page)

*emphasis added by me.
Yeah. No. Oh god. Won’t someone please think of the children????
