filipino grandma reads go the f**ck to sleep

Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach is a children's book that is most definitely not intended for children, but perfectly captures many a parent's frustration over that kid who just will not go the f*ck to sleep.

If you've read the book -- or heard audio of Samuel L. Jackson's awesome reading of it -- it's pretty hilarious, in that I-feel-your-pain kind of way. But you know what's even funnier? This video of a Filipino grandmother reading the book aloud:

Oh, you naughty kids. So bad. But terribly funny. I love how lola gradually realizes what she's reading, objects to it multiple times ("Oh Lord! It's not a good book!") and yet keeps on going. It's simultaneously profane and cute.
