10 Really Inappropriate Coloring Books That Actually Exist

Parents, if you think your children should be aware of something but don’t feel like explaining, not to worry! You can just shove a coloring book at them instead, because coloring books are the best way for children to learn. We admit, we were pretty surprised when we heard about Occupy, a 36-page coloring book about — you guessed it — the Occupy Wall Street movement that hit shelves yesterday. But with a little further investigation, we realize that we shouldn’t have been — inappropriate coloring books, from the political to the sexual to the just plain weird, are to be found all over. Some of these — The Gangsta Rap Coloring Book, for instance — are meant to be satirical, but others are woefully, awkwardly serious. Click through to see our list of incredibly inappropriate coloring books for children and adults, and let us know which would make you get your crayons out in the comments.


If you’ve been feeling a burning desire to get out the crayons and color in scenes of police officers surveying protestors at Zuccotti Park, Guy Fawkes-faced protesters carrying the Golden bull, or, um, Rachel Maddow and Bill O’Reilly, this is the book for you. And by the way you guys, no matter how much you try to push the “grown-up coloring book novel” angle, no one’s fooled. Coloring books are for children. Just like Occupy Wall Street, right guys?
