As a reward for good behavior I recently bought the boys a couple Captain Underpants books. I'm not sure their mother completely approved, but I thought they seemed like the kind of books little boys would like as a reward. I was not wrong.
The books are cute and irreverent. I was especially interested to see how each of the books illustrates the boys' creativity with an example of them changing a sign to say something funny. Here is one:

It wasn't until I was a senior in high school that I was introduced to this mode of creative fun. Late at night you find a sign with movable letters and rearrange it to say something else.

I wrote down the words on the sign and later, while at the bowling alley, some friends and I (Jayson, Trey, and Joel?) brainstormed a funny/irreverent rearrangement. It was probably several weeks later before we got around to executing our plan. One Saturday night, David W. was the driver, and Jayson and I did the rearranging. The following afternoon, we returned to the scene of the crime for a photo shoot with Lori playing photographer. Here are the pictures:
