The Very Hungry George Dubya

Today is the first day of spring! To commemorate this monumentous occasion, Google has modified their logo.

Today, the Very Hungry Caterpillar is featured. If you haven’t read this book, I think it’s safe to assume you experienced an extremely saddening childhood. One without many other kindergarten joys such as eating Green Eggs and Ham, or finding out Where the Wild Things Are.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been loved by children since it was first published in 1969. The book has even been cited as George W. Bush’s favourite book while growing up. Unfortunately for Mr. Bush, he was in his early 20’s when the book was published.

Perhaps there was some sort of miscommunication when he was asked. Perhaps George thought the question was “What’s your favourite childrens’ book?”, instead of “What’s your favourite childhood book?”

Either way: hilarious.
