Remember Mr. Stupid?

One thing is certain around our house. We never know what is going to come out of Cody's mouth.

Tonight, as Cody was getting into his pajamas, he randomly said, "Remember Mr. Stupid?" I tried to think of all the men in Cody's life that he would possibly be calling stupid until Cody added, "...and his dog named Kitty?"

That's when it occurred to me! Cody was talking about a book we had when our kids were younger titled 'The Stupids Step Out'. There was an entire series of books written by Harry G. Allen, Jr. about a family whose last name was Stupid. Some people didn't appreciate the humor in these books, but our family loved them. (Kinda like some of the parents at Casey's preschool umpteen years ago, who thought letting your child watch Power Rangers was going to make them violent individuals, but that's off the subject. Sorry.)

Anyhow... If you have a sense of humor, go to amazon.com and check these books out.


And if not? Well, maybe you should consider lightening up a bit?

I first heard about "The Stupids" at a TA reading workshop some 20 years ago. I tried to get our school library to get the series but they wouldn't. I remember the books were really funny.

These books sound vaguely familiar. I bet if I read them to my kids, they would never forget it! lol

Nice to meet you! Small world...we just moved from Cedar City and loved every minute! You have a great looking family.

I remember these books. We loved them. Perhaps it was our warped sense of humor. Makes life fun.
