LeVar Burton of Reading Rainbow reading the adult bedtime story Go The Fuck To Sleep by Adam Mansbach is one of those surreal moments in life that don’t come along very often.

Burton, to me, always seemed like the kind of guy who’d apologize for saying the word “heck” in conversation so seeing him drop F-bombs and calling the book “one of my favorite children’s stories” on the ExtraLife charity telethon to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals is just too great.

Of course, LeVar Burton is no stranger to doing clever things to raise money and this was just another one of them as it was a reward to viewers for raising $75,000.
