Forbidden fruit.

When I was in high school, our public library had a waiting list for 'The Canterbury Tales." Can you imagine? "The Canterbury Tales." Do you know why?

Because we were forbidden to read it in its entirety in school. It was too racy. Unquote.

There was also a waiting list for "Flowers for Algernon" and "Catcher in the Rye."

The only reason I read those, and many others, as a kid, was because the school forbade it. We were given a list of forbidden books every year, and we had to sign a pledge promising that we would NOT read these dirty books.

If they were really smart, they would have given us a list of books they WANTED us to read and told us they were forbidden.

Stupid schools.

We were also forbidden to read the Song of Solomon in Youth Group. That's why we took flashlights to church and read it in the dark basement. There was also some serious making out going on down there.

Not that I would personally know.

For years, that's what I thought "Holy Roller" meant.
