Saturday with Boo and Mister-- DVDs

Check out what we found at the library!!!

It's a read-along dvd for the book I Stink!

How awesome is that?

PLUS it has Mike Mulligan on it and a few others. So cool.

And it must be fairly new, because the disc wasn't scratched to within an inch of its life.

Speaking of which-- WHAT IN THE STINKIN' WORLD are people DOING with these discs?!??!?!?!? I mean, seriously.

My husband loves video games, right? But he's got a bunch of sports games for PS2 that came with other things-- and he's just not into them. And they have NO resell value. Like seriously none.

SO (I have a point, I promise) he lets Mister play with them. These things float around with the other toys.... sometimes in cases, most times not. They look pretty darn awful. They're certainly not playable.

AND YET, they look BETTER than half the kids dvds from the library! What the heck?

My theory, people are letting their kids use the discs as pucks for street hockey. It's the only explanation, I tell you. Ri-freakin'-diculous. (That's the whole SSDC thing again, folks. Sorry.)

Okay, stepping off my soapbox.

This is why I miss VHS. They're a lot harder to destroy without actually trying. And more kid friendly. I'll cry when the library stops carrying them.


  1. I wish whatever mutilation techniques people do with the library DVD's they would stop. I'm constantly replacing them. Sigh....

  2. I'm telling you, street hockey is the only explanation!
    I hate checking out kids dvds... and I hate having to take them up to the librarian to say they don't work.
