The Big Snark-Off!

Enough of that libraryland crap. I know what my reader really likes.

I personally concurr with the Librarian's Guide to Etiquette's staff roster suggestion and hereby nominate myself for "least-dignified."

Character, Being a library
from A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette by J
Every library's personnel roster should include someone to fill each of the following character roles:
the village idiot
the insecure scholar
the Pollyanna
the skanky slut
the pretty one

It is recommended to write these roles into people's job descriptions so that you don't end up with more than one idiot.
Oh good grief, fellas. Let's ease up on the religion crap.
Oh poor John McCain. Barack went to Europe and the Middle East and all Johnny got was a chunk of skin cancer removed. Wah wah

New Yorker' Editor Defends Obama Cover
from NPR Topics: Arts & Culture
This week's New Yorker magazine shows a cartoon of Sen. Barack Obama dressed like Osama bin Laden, and his wife, Michelle, donning military gear. They are sharing a fist-bump in the Oval Office. Editor David Remnick says the illustration was meant to poke fun at the "politics of fear."
I saw the illustration. Trust me, if you have to explain why the cover of a New Yorker is humorous you've just plain blown it. Apologize and move on.

Bring-Shame-To-The-Faith Department
Semiautomatic Assault Rifles For Jesus
from The United Church of Christ by Rev. Chuck Currie
The UCC's Pastor Dan has a post up on Street Prophets about a church (thankfully not UCC) that planned on giving away a semiautomatic assault rifle as a door prize for a youth event. Alas, plans didn't work out this year but they promise to give away the gun next year. Visit Windsor Hills Baptist Church to learn about about this really cutting edge congregation. Perhaps the UCC should start raising money to pay for bullet proof jackets for kids who might go to school with students who attend Windsor Hills.
I Say: WTFBBQ? On what planet is this remotely a good idea?

Bad Placement
Twin Peaks anyone?

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

Hooray! A cover-snark! Hooray!

I really did once date a guy with a tatoo of a unicorn on his shoulder. Fortunately, it was not 3-D as that could have interfered with the very activity illustrated on the cover. I just don't know how these two do it!
