DES MOINES - The Iowa State Senate has just voted to ban two children's Christmas books on the grounds that the are highly inappropriate for the youngsters of the great state of Iowa.
Senator Claudette Cora Wonderwillow [R-Sioux City] informed the Iowa news media that the measure passed by an overwhelming vote of 37-13.
She noted that one of the senators who voted against banning the books is related to the author of one of the books.
The two classic children's books which the state banned are The Truth About The Sexual Orientation of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer and Baking Anatomically Correct Christmas Gingerbread Men Is A Good Way to Get Grandma and Grandpa All Bent Out Of Shape.
Senator Wonderwillow stated that she understands that the two books are still being sold in each of the other 49 states but she was quick to add that Iowa is a little bit more old-fashioned than any other state in the nation; including Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.
