Share a Modern Classic Today: The Stinky Cheese Man

Yes, I used the word "classic" and the word "stinky" in the same sentence. It is true, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales is a modern classic. A classic laugh riot. Or in other words: a kind of new, but also kind of old unbelievably stupid book that will make you laugh until you cry. And the great thing about this book is it is not just for kids. In fact, the older you are, the funnier it gets*. Really: It. Gets. Funnier.

And the illustrations are pretty okay too. Lane Smith won a Caldecott honor for his artwork. Not bad for a fairly stupid book.

*Reader must have an appreciation for really, really stupid humor mixed with a few fairy tales.
