"Follow your inclinations with due regard to the policeman around the corner..."

Here is a children's book from 1974, with a few minor adjustments to the text. Enjoy.

















  1. These are great! Did you make these?

  2. by the way... that was absolutely HILARIOUS!!! it made me laugh....

    so I typed this for my facebook profile and realized it is the most truthful summary of my current life that I have ever thought.... lol...

    i know you are kinda feeling the same way about some things so i thought I'd share it

    I'm pretty boring. I graduated High School, went to a little bit of college, promptly dropped out, and am trying to "discover myself". Basically I have no idea what I'm doing and am living by the seat of my pants until I can figure out what I (emhasize the I) actually want. Music used to be my thing, but I think we needed a break so I haven't sung in over 6 months. It just got to the point where I didn't know why I was doing it anymore, and singing was just making me cry and feel miserable because I was so mad about regressing. I'm working in a windowless building processing deposits and I deal with money all day. I come home dirty and tired after 10+ hours of being around millions of dollars. The guards talk about guns all day, but I get to bring my ipod and listen to whatever I want. I just rediscovered Kelly Clarkson and my new favorite is Katie Thompson. I've never dated anyone and I try to go to church on Sundays. My parents are moving to Honduras in a couple weeks. I'm trying to get a job as a Nanny in either New York, New Jersey or Conneticut.

    isn't that great?!
    love you liz

    i think i might be coming to visit soon. david is up there right now and is leaving in 4-5 weeks so i have to come see him soon. and i really want to go to jackson hole sometime this summer to see jill too.... i'm gonna call you tomorrow and lets see what our schedules say..

  3. Liz,

    I need to know the truth of this. Did you change the text in this? Because it was freaking hysterical. Good job. Even if it wasn't you, good job for posting this masterpiece.
