Witty Old King Stinky Toes demonstrates
his benevolent service to his subjects.
|"The following story contains some
and subject matter that may not disturb anyone. It's
about an old stinky king, and he has a quandary. Old King Stinky Toes loves
his subjects, but his toes smell really bad. And when we say "bad", we mean it in the
legendary sense. So bad, in fact, Old King Stinky Toes has inspired a
virtuous children's book
with a humorous title, Old King Stinky Toes. The book, Old
King Stinky Toes, is sure to be an odoriferous hit, and it was
blissfully created by my
son, his fourth grade teacher and me, his proud father.
