People Baffled As BFG Artwork Appears To Show NSFW Body Part

Parents have been left bewildered by an apparent naughty illustration in Roald Dahl's The BFG.

The Big Friendly Giant may be known for talking cheekily about 'whizzpoppers,' but one of Quentin Blake's illustrations has caused quite the stir among parents for appearing to go quite far past the 'brief rude humour' which saw the film adaptation receive a rating of PG.

Richard Herring was quick to leap to social media in alarm after his daughter pointed out a very NSFW detail.

Prepare to have part of your childhood nearly ruined.

The poor child was not only faced with the nail-biting image of the BFG roughly clasped in the grips of a menacing-looking giant, but she was also faced with a rather rude-appearing illustration.

Herring wrote: "My daughter pointed out that the giant on the title page of the BFG had his winkie showing.

"I told her she must be mistaken, but then had a look and….."

Herring even shared the image again to Twitter, questioning how a child's book could feature a character who 'appears to have his cock out'.

Thankfully, Owen Adams came to the rescue.

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

The black and white image reveals the drawing is not of the giant's 'cock,' but in fact his thumb and hand.

A very unfortunate edit indeed.

Twitter users flooded to the post in gratitude over Adams' sharing of the original artwork which immediately quashed the initial horror of a giant having his 'snozzcumber' out, as one Instagrammer so eloquently put it.

One user wrote: "Thank you. I was going mad thinking what the hell could it be. The thumb? The thumb for Gods sake?? What the hell is the thumb doing there??"

Another questioned why nobody had spotted quite how inappropriate the illustration appeared before the book was printed. "A fine example of how not to crop a picture. You wonder why nobody thought of digitally removing the thumb in the cropped version after the artwork was scanned," they said.

"Phew, order and innocence have been restored," another user commented.

A final applauded Adams: "Was scrolling through the comments looking for someone with sense. You're doing God's work."

Roald Dahl may have actually hated children, but it's good to know he didn't hate them so much to subject them to some weird type of giant porn.
