Library diversification

Scaryduck suggests that libraries would make ideal arenas for paintball, a move which would help to give the staff greater feelings of empowerment:

For, and let’s be perfectly frank here, there’s nothing Miss Peabody, who has sat meekly behind the counter for 27 years wants more than to rampage through the Dewey Decimal System screaming “DIEDIEDIEYOUFUCKER Shhhhhhhhhhh!” whilst pumping red-hot paint blobs at the inert and partially-clothed body of a colleague who once filed Charles Darwin under ‘Fiction’.


Incidentally, looking through the comments for the above post I came across an excellent and very succinct summary by Mouser of the library qualification system:

But for a year of full-time study, £3,000 and a series of increasingly-meaningless essays you too can hold a qualification in library science, so that you can answer all those difficult and important questions. 99% of which can be answered with:

  1. Yes, you will have to pay it.
  2. It’s probably being shelved.
  3. Over there, under that sign that says ‘Toilet’


Newsworthy pun

A classic pun from the BBC today. I do hope it is intentional. The headline was:

Five arrested in joint operation

Predictably, the story went on:

Five people have been arrested and drugs with a street value of £1m seized in an operation by Thames Valley Police and the Prison Service.

Sadly, it doesn’t actually specify that the drugs involved included cannabis. It merely refers to class A and class C drugs. I don’t know what class cannabis is in this week, but I think it is one of those two.
