Banned Book Month Day Two - You sure look funny naked.

Another frequently challenged book is "The Dirty Cowboy" by Amy Timberlake.  While I'm not going to state that this picture book has the same societal and personal impact as A.A. Milne's works, it is a cute little story.  After discovering a tumbleweed in his britches and some bugs a-buzzin' a cowboy decides that it is time for his yearly bath.  He strips down and leaves his clothing on the banks of the river after instructing his faithful hound not to let anyone steal them. After his bath, he smells so different that the confused beast won't relinquish the cowboy's coverins.  Though the cartoon cowboy's privates are covered in every picture, this book has been banned in many places due to the nudity.

Today's prompt: Use a little nudity to make us giggle.
