One Child Left Behind

I used to think that the stupidest thing anyone could possibly say about a library was to call it a liberry... but I was wrong. Before I explain why, I need to get something off my chest: I don't understand mispronunciation. I'm not talking about words with more than one socially acceptable pronunciation--like Caribbean--I'm talking about words that can only be pronounced one way, yet somehow, a surprisingly vast contingent of idiots has opted to completely ignore the actual letters in the word, and insert their own, giving rise to gems like 'supposably' and 'nucular'.

Like I said, I used to think that people who mispronounced library were the crème de la crème of morons--and they are, I can't take that away from them--but there is a lower rung on the ladder of stupidity. Apparently, there are people so hopelessly feeble-minded that mispronouncing library is not even an option, because they don't know what a library is.

If stupidity were bright like the sun, you'd have to shield your eyes from this:

You may have noticed that Selekta has 913 posts. This leads me to believe he was not born yesterday, which is actually pretty troubling. How he was able to repeatedly contribute to an online community over the course of what may well have been years, yet somehow never encountered a library, is totally beyond me.

It's cool how when you're on the Internet you can buy all sorts of different kinds of stuff. You know what they should invent? A real place where you can go to buy all kinds of different stuff. Kind of like a real life version of the Internet!

ahahaha

Hey, this place you can rent books is an awesome idea! And as Shana mentioned real-life places to buy products found on the net would be awesome.

On that note, I keep hoping that someone will invent a place you can go to and get food, like a restaurant, but where you could buy those ingredients yourself and make dinner at your own convenience...

Oh what a fantastic find, Evan. Thanks for that.

Dan Shepler said...

yeah, that food place, I believe they have one. It's called a "food library"

Oh! I am so there!
