What an amazing, hilarious find. Maybe the best £3 ever spent.

    i just returned this to the uni library last week.

    it always makes me think of that scene in footloose where the dogooders say they have a problem over at the high school with the english teacher wanting to teach that horrrible book.
    one of the woman says:slaughterhouse 5. isnt that a terrible name for a book
    and kevin bacon's character, ren, says: oh yeah it's great book. it's a classic
    and they all look at him like he just ate a baby.
    and a guy says: maybe in some other town
    and ren says:in any town
    and the man says:tom sawyer is a classic

    ren was right. tis a classic. :)
    hear my name
    take a good look
    this could be the day
    hold my hand
    lie beside me
    i just need to say
