Library X Joke

What a happy patron would say at a typical academic library:

"This is great. I got a cup of coffee, a book, and a warm welcome."

What a happy patron would say at Library X:

“This is great. I got a beer, a bag of chips, and a glimpse of someone’s ding-a-ling.”

Is this the same patron that frequents the "Library X is a Brothel" Myspace group?

Dear Lord! What ever is going on at Library X?

This gives new meaning to the phrase: "all that and a bag of chips!"

Your library is truly interesting. Once someone filmed a porno movie in ours after hours but that's been years.

My brother went to Notre Dame and aparently the football players would run though the library naked on a regular basis ... Don't know about the beer or the chips, though.

Wow, naked football players running through the library? Can you direct them west, to IL?

It's funny that I work in a public library and we have the same issues with beer, chips and ding-a-lings. However, I don't count that necessarily as "great".

Inexplicable Device: I don't know what goes on here. It's scary how much I don't know. It's nothing new for paramedics to come in and go downstairs without even a glance at me and me not know at all why they are there.

Librarian Girl: Yes, it does.

Katya: What's the name of the porno! Not even we can claim that, at least as far as I know...

librarian pirate: Hee. I envy Notre Dame.

Happy Villan: Yeah, but you get a far broader swatch of the public than I do. My patrons are usually eighteen to twenty-four so the ding-a-lings look pretty good more often than not.

Spike: I am not planting cameras in the stacks. I refuse. It's all about "Plausible Deniability". If I knew what went on, I might be held accountable.

So if an Australian with some suss equipment wanders in, you didn't see nuffing.

And by suss equipment I don't mean my equipment.
