Things That Make Me Go Hmmmm..., Book Cover Edition

Can't you just see the committee that came up with this book concept?

"Kids love Winnie the Pooh!"

"And kids love to learn how to cook!"

"Let's join them together, in 'Cooking with Pooh'!"

(Here's where normally someone on the committee is supposed to speak up and say, "ummm.... guys." Apparently that committee member was sick that day.)

And for this one, I imagine the concept design like this.

"Okay, we want to make sure the reader knows that there is a lot of sex in this book."

"What about having man and woman staring into each other's eyes like they're just about ready to hop in the sack?"

"Hmmmm... I think we need something more. How about a crotch?"

"Ummm..."

"Yup. Go with the man and woman thing, but frame the whole thing with a crotch so that there's no question."

Oh My Gosh. I'm laughing so hard right now. Cooking with Pooh. Thanks, Kim, for the much needed laugh!

Nope, don't want to cook with animals in the kitchen. As for the crotch? um, totally not a grabber of a cover. Are they KIDDING? you're right; the sane committee member was out that day.

I'd seen the first cover before, but not the second one. Thanks for sharing!

Ha, ha, ha...and it took me a minute with the Cooking With Pooh. This was great!

What are you talking about?! I'm totally getting "Cooking with Pooh" for my kids. :)

I'll probably pass on buying my children the crotch book, though...
