People Stunned as BFG Artwork Appears to Show NSFW Body Part

Parents are stunned by an apparently mischievous illustration in Roald Dahl’s the BFG

The Big Friendly Giant may be known for brazenly talking about “whizzpoppers,” but one of Quentin Blake’s illustrations has caused quite a stir among parents because they seemed to go quite far beyond the “brief rude humor” that gave the film adaptation a rating of PG.

Richard Herring quickly jumped to social media in a panic after his daughter pointed out a very NSFW detail.

Prepare to have some of your childhood almost ruined.

Not only was the poor kid confronted with the nail-biting image of the BFG, roughly clutched in the clutches of a menacing-looking giant, but she was also faced with a rather crude-looking illustration.

Haring wrote: “My daughter pointed out that the giant on the title page of the BFG had shown his winkie.

“I told her she was wrong, but then looked and…”

Herring even re-shared the image on Twitter, wondering how a children’s book could feature a character who “seems to have his dick out.”

Fortunately, Owen Adams came to the rescue.

“Wondering if anyone else spent ages looking for the original artwork?” he said.

The black and white image shows that the drawing is not the giant’s ‘cock’, but his thumb and hand.

A very unfortunate edit indeed.

Twitter users flocked to the post in gratitude for Adams’ sharing of the original artwork, instantly dispelling the initial horror of a giant pulling out his “snozzcumber,” as one Instagrammer so eloquently put it.

One user wrote: “Thank you. I went crazy thinking what the hell could it be. The thumb? The damn thumb? What the hell is that thumb doing there?”

Another wondered why no one had noticed how inappropriate the illustration seemed before the book was printed. “A great example of how not to crop a photo. You wonder why no one thought of digitally removing the thumb in the cropped version after the artwork was scanned,” they said.

“Whew, order and innocence have been restored,” commented another user.

Adams gave a final applause: “Was scrolling through the comments looking for someone with sense. You’re doing God’s work.”

Roald Dahl may have hated kids, but it’s good to know that he didn’t hate them so much as to subject them to some weird kind of giant porn.
