Above is an incomplete sentence that has been banned by a Canadian school to protect children from ‘political messaging’. It is from one of Dr. Seuss series of books first published in the 50s but now it has been ‘reviewed’ in the context of a prolonged strike action by BC teachers, and perhaps the Occupy movement. O hillarity!
At Uddari, we would also recommend the following sentence:
DISPLAY DR SEUSS’s SENTENCE (in its incompletion) IN ALL CLASSROOMS ACROSS CANADA. Her’s an incarnation by TRAP, The Real Art of Protest.
YERTLE THE TURTLE
by Jill Pantozzi
We’ve all heard of books being banned before, and as ridiculous as we may sometimes find the titles on those lists, none may be more ridiculous than this one. A school in Canada has chosen to ban Dr. Seuss’ Yertle the Turtle for being subversive to children. I do not like this one bit, in fact, it has me in a snit. (Don’t worry, that was my one and only attempt at rhyming in this article.)
