The celebrity picture books you will never see

After I heard that Jessica Simpson was going to put out a children's book of her own poetry... well I just snapped. I couldn't take it anymore. So I got to thinking about other celebrities and how odd it would be if they started writing children's books. Some awfully idle thoughts.

  • Fran Lebowitz - She'd probably write a picture book about a bagel cryogenically frozen in 1953 who wakes up today and finds there isn't another decent bagel like him to be found anywhere. Title: The Last Bagel
  • Tom Cruise - Something overly enthusiastic about the beauty of childbirth without medicine and where the mommy isn't allowed to make any noise.
  • Stephen Colbert - Since Bill O'Reilly wrote a book, Colbert HAS to follow suit.
  • Ringo Starr - All the other Beatles did, basically. It seems odd that our own Mr. Conductor hasn't.
  • Suge Knight - Unless he's already done one. Does anyone know?

I do hate to break this to you, but google "Leibowitz" and "pandas." (So happy to be the first...)

I was just popping in to say I could swear Leibowitz had done it...

Oh. My. God.
You have GOT to be kidding me. "Mr. Chas & Lisa Sue Meet the Pandas"???? This is insane. Guess I should do my homework before I write posts of this nature. And now I have to go out and find that book too. Whatta life. Is someone going to bonk me over the head with a Tom Cruise book as well?

So, when are we going to start seeing picture books illustrated by celebrities? Jon Heder, would you like to go first?

Amen to that, sister. Hilarious and hot as hell.
