    last night we had a family fish fry/baby shower since we just had the new baby 2 weeks ago. i fried up 20 pounds of catfish, striper, sand bass and crappie, along with salad, corn, coconut shrimp and scampi shrimp. dessert was lemon meringue cake and fruit pie cake. momma didn't want a baby shower, so that part was a surprise. we were opening gifts for momma and the boy and someone in my family slipped in a bambi book! they know i can't stand the antihunting message in there, and slipped it just to mess with me! with the girls it was pokemon, after i told them my kids weren't allowed to have it. i guess my family just likes to get a rise out of me, but i guess it's also all in fun. :eek:oooh: for them anyway!

    good parenting. When debating with 'Anti-hunters' that is their most common argument, 'but its bambi!'

    well my family aren't anti's, they just do this to rile me. it's like my mom used to tell me :"do you want to light a little firecracker, or a big one?"

    Now I know the message in that book, but I don't see why you wouldn't want it in your house.

    I bet that story got read to you a million times when you were little, probably saw the movie too, and you turned out OK!:smile2:

    I saw the movie lots and even though I don't hunt, (I eat) I definately have no problem with others hunting.

    If I was your family......I would have bought the kid the movie!

    Just picking on ya, I want a BIG firecracker!:smile2:

    Yea, that book is messed up. Everyone knows they should have shot Bambi or Mama instead of Daddy, they would have been a lot more tender! LOL

    You need to find the original Bambi, A life in the Woods. It was written by Felix Salten.

    It's slightly different than the movie. :wink:

    I am 39 years old and somehow have never in my life read the book or watched the movie. Seems strange but I was never interested...:big_smile:

    Gee, I wish that were the worst problem I'd ever had with my clan. For what it is worth, I'd just let it go with a laugh. It's just a kid's book, it does not matter in the long scheme of life. The best any of us can do is just be a responsible fisherman or hunter. Set an example.
