Michael Wayne Rosen (born 7 May 1946) is an English broadcaster, poet and children's book author. He was appointed as the fifth Children's Laureate in June 2007, succeeding Jacqueline Wilson, and held this honour until 2009.

Rosen recently gained some notoriety in the Internet as a subject of a YouTube Poop (YTP) series involving his videos being spliced to make it seem like he's saying something else, i.e. profanities, absurd stories, or other adult references. While he did somewhat object to it, his reaction to the parodies was mostly positive if not ambivalent, commending on the poopers' creativity. He did also agree to a YTPer's comment in an email, regarding parents being lax on their children's surfing habits.

In the parodies

Besides being featured on YTPs, Rosen also appeared on parodies and/or poops made by certain Untergangers like Benad361, DictatorAntics and WonkyTonkBotty. Benad's Rosen Wars: Revenge of the Plamz marks Rosen's first major involvement in the Parody Universe - to the extent that he is the Dark Lord of the 'Toenails'. He even manages to take the German Fuehrer, Adolf Hitler, as his new apprentice, and the two plot to conquer the Parody Universe.

In one story, he is shown to have been very rebellious in school, to the extent that his attempt to break out of detention (alongside Harrybo) results in a massive showdown with Rosenland's authorities.

Some untergangers view him to be one of the most resourceful and successful characters in the Parody Universe - he is not only a master of military strategy, but (as seen in the Rosen Wars series, and other parodies) he is not afraid to lead from the front, directly participating in battles, and fighting hand-to-hand with great amounts of skill and resource.
