The Rainbow Fish

I stumbled across this fairly awful book for the first time in my life a few hours ago. To summarize: Rainbow fish has pretty scales but won't share them. The other fish ostracize him because he's a jerk. An octopus tells him to give out his scales. Soon, he only has one pretty scale left, but he looks like everyone else and they all like him. Conformity makes everyone like you!

I'd sure as hell be nice to anyone who gave me bits of their skin. That sounds like painful shit.

I poked around blogger to see what everyone else thought.

I found this poem that summarizes the book very well, and is also incredibly amusing.

I also found this scathing review of the book, claiming that The Rainbow Fish is Marxist propaganda.

Communist propaganda isn't always a bad thing. My favorite childhood book was The Three Fat Men, by Yuri Olesha. Mind you, I'm a flaming liberal, but so is the rest of my family. I would have ended up like this anyway.

You're hilarious --

you know, i've been babysitting for a good decade and I've read rainbow fish to a bunch of kids, but i've never REALIZED that it is Marxist propaganda. It IS! it's a HORRIBLE story! Wow...

I am really impressed along with your writing talents as

this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it's uncommon to peer a great blog like this one nowadays..

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% certain.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
