A library in England is trying to figure out why exactly a man dressed as a bare-assed rainbow monkey with a anatomically-correct genitalia was hired in an attempt to encourage children to read.
I know, I know. It’s hard to grasp exactly what we’re dealing with here, but just picture it: your kids are sitting down, excited to hear a speaker who is going to tell them all about the joys of reading. Then, a man dressed as a bare-assed rainbow monkey walks in, which is weird enough. What’s even weirder is that the monkey is sporting a full-on fake penis.
Still not quite able to picture it? Well, I’ve got good news for you. There are actually pictures of the bare-assed rainbow monkey man and they’re about as insane as you would expect:
Apparently this is meant to encourage kids in Redbridge to pick up reading for summer. Please tell me the rationale behind these indecent costumes that were shown to families and done so publicly. Is this really necessary? @Jas_Athwal @RedbridgeLive pic.twitter.com/6I8DBcmDM3

According to Daily Mail, the man was hired by an independent contractor, who probably shouldn’t ever get hired again.
Oh, and as for the children? I’m going to go ahead and assume that none of them ever want to go to a library again. Would you?
