Maurice Sendak tells parents to go to hell

So freaking awesome!

Reporter: “What do you say to parents who think the Wild Things film may be too scary?” Sendak: “I would tell them to go to hell. That’s a question I will not tolerate.” Reporter: “Because kids can handle it?” Sendak: “If they can’t handle it, go home. Or wet your pants. Do whatever you like. But it’s not a question that can be answered.”
