Here's a new way to get your kid to sleep

This final note today, which comes with a warning that we're gonna censor out the nasty bits, but what follows might not be appropriate for everyone.

There's a new number one on the bestseller list at Amazon. It's a nighttime book for kids. For their parents, actually.

It's called Go the F*** to Sleep. And a sample verse goes like this:

The tiger reclines in the simmering jungle.

The sparrow has silenced her cheep.

F*** your stuffed bear...I'm not getting you s***.

Close your eyes.

Cut the crap.

Sleep.
