The Big Snarkoff!

Well dear reader, yesterday's brouhaha was a classic. A group of kids beat-up a homeless dude in the park and it was rather serious. In a rather unimaginative move, the perpetrator(s) ran into the library, presumably to hide amongst the book stacks? Alas, one of the soon-to-be- rocket-scientist/perpetrators was found and briskly frisked in front of the periodicals desk, cuffed, and led away.

As our good buddy Tom said: That's what he gets for not putting the periodicals back in alphabetical order!

On to the Snark!

Fail-Blog has become one of my new favorites. A posting of late gives me more evidence that the "English Only" movement should not be a speaking English movement but, rather, a spelling and grammar movement.

The Librarian's Guide to Etiquette so frequently hits the nail on the head that I never tire of these her above-average snarks. Do it again! Do it again!

You are a librarian. An information professional. You are too old to be into lolcats. Seriously. Stop it.

It is not necessary to contact PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) when your library administrators are beating a dead horse. On the other hand, a librarian should contact the authorities immediately if you catch someone spanking the monkey or choking a chicken in the library.

Cart me off to library jail!

Here's a case of sanity winning out over evil:
