The Big Snark-Off!

Karen Schneider, the Freerange Librarian has restarted her Twitterprose project. How she finds these things is beyond me. Some of them are Priceless:
“My worries begin as I unzip my pants.”
“Once, years ago, I got into a dogfight.”

Dressing, On how to use as a torture device
from A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette by Sal
Librarians, being notoriously bad dressers, can sure learn a lot from this. I especially concur about hats.

Collections, Special
from A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette by J
"A good librarian should collect something. Anything. House your collection of unicorn figurines, Pez dispensers, or dog skulls in your library workspace to show your coworkers what a well-rounded individual you are." J hits the nail on the head with this one. I must confess that, after finding the 3rd tiny gecko skull in my house after the rest was eaten by one of my cats, I did briefly consider a display. Or gross jewelry.

And my beloved former co-worker and upcoming poet Eduardo Corral often makes my day:

from Lorcaloca by Eduardo C. Corral
"A woman required 20 stitches to her face after a pelican crashed into her in the sea off Florida, apparently diving for fish. Ouch!" This is why Eduardo is a good poet. The "ouch" sums up what it would have taken me 2 paragraphs to express.
