An Educator Read ‘I Need a New Butt!’ to Children. Then He Was Fired.

“I Need a New Butt!,” which was published in 2012, is marketed to children ages 4 to 8 and tells the story of a young boy who sets off to find a new behind after he sees a “crack” in his and fears it’s broken.

Mr. Price said that school administrators told him they were worried they would get complaints from parents about the subject matter.

When he was called into the superintendent’s office, he said that one of the administrators asked him, “Is this the kind of thing you find funny?”

Mr. Price replied, “Well, I did before I walked in here.”


Well, I suppose we all have to agree that butts are indeed a divisive issue - at least a divided one.

This country needs a new butt.
