What is "pretty funny" is how you categorize discussion of any topic that is not leftist approved as "getting all worked up".
Dr. Seuss is amusing. Talking about Dr. Seuss is fun. Fun is a recreation in which conservatives often indulge. I'll bet you could learn about it on the leftist approved Google, however, Snopes might deny its existence.

That is potentially wonderful news.

My dear wife is a big fan of Dr Seuss books and over the decades she has managed to collect all of the books, including many duplicates.

Our Grandchildren have enjoyed her reading them to them as much as she loves re-reading them.

It's gratifying to know that we might now have a very valuable heirloom to hand down.

On the other hand I'll now have to re-evaluate our insurance policies to account for the sudden "windfall"....

What is also "pretty funny", (as in odd), is how Leftists always seem to believe that others are ruled by their emotions like they are.

QFT. What's on display here is the "y'all" being jerked around by the likes of Fox News and Newsmax. If I were a "ReTrumplican" I guess it would be more agreeable to think about Dr Seuss than about some other recent and current developments. More agreeable, but more "real"--not so much.

Dr Seuss Enterprises will no longer publish 6 (just 6) of his many (more than 60) illustrated children's books.

 
quote
Earlier this week, a school district in Virginia made headlines for ALLEGEDLY banning books by Dr. Seuss.

BUT Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS), located in Ashburn, said it is NOT BANNING BOOKS by the famous children's author -- it's just discouraging a connection between "Read Across America Day," which was created to get kids excited about reading, and Dr. Seuss' birthday. Both fall on March 2, and have often been "historically connected" to each other, the district said in a statement.

It's not hard to scroll fairly quickly through one or more of these reports and get an actual sense of what it's about.

WaPo
https://www.washingtonpost....8a4215c78_story.html

CNN
https://www.cnn.com/2021/03...tion-trnd/index.html

NBC News
https://www.nbcnews.com/new...ears-making-n1259330

Business Insider
https://www.businessinsider...ad-racist-ads-2012-3

I guess there could be some particularly "woke" public school districts that have literally banned Dr Seuss. I would look first to San Francisco and Berkeley, for sure. They're not far away from here.

"Tell me about it."

Interesting you think book burning is funny. What else do you find humorous? Re-education camps? Ovens? Maybe showers for anyone not on the left?

The offending image of one book was African and grass skirts bone in nose. Another was a chinese man drawn with lines as eyes eating with chopsticks. Eventually you will all give in to all the new rules and remain indoors and do as told. Shut up be happy.

I am not stupid. Funny is right, that you are all worked up about something we are not. We are just observing truth.

The company is stopping production on it's own underselling product ? You might want to check your sanity.

Online retailer eBay is removing several Dr. Seuss books from its website that are no longer being published.
"At eBay, we have a strict policy against hate and discrimination to ensure our platform remains a safe, trusted and inclusive environment for our global community of buyers and sellers," eBay Corporate Communications Specialist Parmita Choudhury said. "We're currently sweeping our marketplace to remove these items. It can take some time to review all existing listings and provide education to impacted users. We're also monitoring the newly published list to be reviewed."


[color=red]They are no longer being published because of the Woke-A-Cola thugs.

Now that EBay will not sell them they will be worth more on the Black Market. Black Market ? Is that Racist, ?

Dr Seuss Enterprises, not a part of any level of government, decides it will no longer publish 6 of the more than 60 Dr Seuss books for which they own the publishing rights.

This, coming on the heels of the "castration" of the (former) "Mr" Potato Head.

Dr. Seuss is out...

But M.L. Webb has just the thing for you: “The GayBCs,”
a way for readers as young as
4 years old to learn every letter in the alphabet in terms of how it relates to LGBT issues.

It’s a REAL book (god help anyone who publicly says this may not be a good thing).
They would be publicly FB shamed, accused of “needing sensitivity training” and maybe even lose their job.

Elmer Fudd is made out to be a fool, he's a dumb, old, bald, fat white guy in the cartoons. Too stupid to catch a damn rabbit! I guess I should be offended.

Keeping things in perspective seems to be a lost art or, would that be too much to ask.

Edited: Oh yeah, I forgot, he's also a gun toting dude intending to kill and most likely eat a bunny, PETA should be all over his ass.
Where's the outrage?
I watched Looney Tunes as a child. Maybe that's why I don't like rabbits.

I think a salient fact here is that the Dr Seuss books have long had a place in the public schools as vehicles for teaching children to read.

Can anyone say the same about the Elmer Fudd character or any of that particular genre of cartoon characters? I think of them as something that a young child could see on TV or on any of the video devices that a young child might have, but not in the context of the public schools and learning to read.

Here's another "backgrounder"

Here's something towards the end of this fairly brief blog post:
 
quote
Last week [in 2017? 2019?], Cambridge Public Schools Librarian Liz Phipps Soiero turned down a gift of Dr. Seuss books from First Lady Melania Trump for National Read a Book Day.

"You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliche, a tired and worn ambassador for children's literature," Soeiro wrote on Horn Book's Family Reading blog. "Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss's illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books and you'll see the racist mockery in his art."

Can anyone say the same about the Elmer Fudd character or any of that particular genre of cartoon characters? I think of them as something that a young child could see on TV or on any of the video devices that a young child might have, but not in the context of the public schools and learning to read.

Here's another "backgrounder"

Children's authors refuse Dr. Seuss museum invite because of mural with 'jarring racial stereotype'

That, would be your perspective. I have my own. Other's may not share it and that's alright but, it's still valid. IOWs if you want to find an issue, it's usually easy to do.

Even as an impressionable child growing up in the '50s and '60s watching all of those old cartoons, I knew Pepe Le Pew was an ass. The girls did not like him. If anything, the character taught generations of little boys not to act like that. Little Andy Cuomo must have been out stealing hubcaps while the cartoons were on.

"You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliche, a tired and worn ambassador for children's literature," Soeiro wrote on Horn Book's Family Reading blog. "Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss's illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books and you'll see the racist mockery in his art."


I think you mean fog post.

Stealing hubcaps came later. He was PePe La Pew.
