Those weren't errors. The students are to pick up the cheap foreign knockoffs of the artists' works. Saves money.

Really?  Bringing politics into our fun fest.  OK, I'll play.  What if we find out that the person who came up with the list was a graduate of that fine educational school, Liberty University?  Or some other conservative poor excuse for a college of higher learning?

We know that can't be true, it's a list for reading books, not burning them.

Rarnaby Budge?

What will be claimed:  The list was sent out "ironically", to see if the kids could even recognize the names/authors of great literature.

What will be the truth: List was typed up by teacher's aide hired to fill protected status category rather than on basis of actual ability to do job.

"It's sad," one mother said. "I read 'The Great Gatsby,' that was in high school, and watched it on TV with Robert Redford, but this here, I didn't read 'The Great Gypsy,' I couldn't find that nowhere."
