These are a few funnies I have found recently:
#1. There is a Verizon vehicle with a “this vehicle makes frequent stops” sticker on the back. What – they pull over & say, “Can you hear me now?”
#2 – From another librarian: “Helped a patron locate book titled The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values, and Spiritual Growth. It was shelved immediately next to F**k It Therapy. I know which one I’D rather read!”
#3 – The first book I glanced at today had the title I Hunt Kittens – at least, I thought it did. The second was Slow Death by Rubber Duck. I thought the first was just bizarre until I looked again & it was I Hunt Killers. OK – that’s better. I thought the second was a silly mystery title until I read the sub-title, The Hidden Dangers of Everyday Things; not a mystery at all. They both went from intriguing to meh.
#4 – I used the key words “slow death and rubber” to pull up the above title: The Joy of Sex was the only other hit with those key words. I don’t really want to know.
#5 – A book on canoeing was returned soaking wet. (Maybe they should have read it before the canoe trip.)
#6 – A book on dog training was returned with the corners chewed off. (They should probably have read it, not teased the dog with it.)
# 7 – This one speaks for itself.
