The Giving Tree As A Horror Film? Watch The HIGHlarious Trailer Here!

Filed under: BookzHIGHlarious

Ever wondered what would happened if the Giving Tree got sick of giving, and decided to seek revenge on the boy who took its apples and limbs? Then we've got a video for you!

The HIGHlarious folks over at Funny or Die have come up with a faux trailer for a movie based on The Giving Tree, the children's book "from the twisted mind of Shel Silverstein."

Not exactly a faithful adaptation of the story you can definitely read to your kids, the trailer shows the Giving Tree giving hell by stabbing, skewering, and slashing with its branches.

Oh, and of course the movie is coming out in "Tree-D." LOL!

Hey, if Sharknado can exist, we don't see any real reason this can't actually be turned into a movie, too! Can someone call Tara Reid like right now??

Ch-ch-check out the trailer…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Shel Silverstein's NEW Book: Every Thing On It

Filed under: BookzStuff 4 Kidz

Every Thing On It Shel Silverstein

This is sure to be a classic!

The world's most beloved children's author and illustrator, Shel Silverstein, passed away in 1999 at age 68.

We are pleased to announce some exciting news: poet's family has recently released 145 previously unpublished poems in a new book called Every Thing On It!!

It's a collection of poems and drawings about hot dogs, birthday parties, the future and other subjects dear to the hearts of children.

Editor of the new collection, Toni Markiet, worked on other projects alongside Silverstein.

Markiet says they picked only the best 145 works from the 1,500 previously unpublished poems and drawings.

We expect Every Thing On It will be just a big apart of the new generation of children's lives as Light in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends was to ours!

Because Why Not? Charlie Sheen Gets A Tattoo On His Chest!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsCharlie Sheen

Good lord. It's beginning to feel as though he'll never stop.

Now that the 'sleeping giant' of batshit crazy has awakened in Charlie Sheen, he's shown no signs of slowing down, and has hit up essentially every media outlet he can to rant about anything and everything - including his tattoo, which features the words 'Death From Above' across his chest, the slogan from his father Martin Sheen's film, Apocalypse Now!

He explains:

"It's the banner from the death card that Kilgore [the Robert Duvall character] is throwing on his victims. But also falling from it is the apple from [poet Shel Silverstein's] 'The Giving Tree.' There's my life. Deal with it. I'm not just my dad. I'm putting up the river to kill another part of me, which is Kurtz. I'm every character in between, save for that little weirdo with his guts strapped in, begging for water. That's not me. But there are parts of me that are Dennis Hopper. 'You have the right to kill me, but you do not have the right to judge me.' Boom. That's the whole movie. That's life."

Yeah, who the hell knows what he's even talking about anymore?

Just the insane rantings of a very sad, ill man who's unable to understand why he's not getting his way for the first time in his life.

Hopefully soon he'll come down off of whatever insane upper he's on and shut his trap, but we may be in for the long haul here. Ugh.

Thoughts??
