Libraryland and Related Occupations - Humor

Book News: Larry Doyle Wins Thurber Prize for American Humor
via Library Journal - Collection Development on 10/7/08
Wrote TV's The Simpsons and Beavis and Butthead.
It's about time the Simpsons got their proper respect!

Webinars, Library
via A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette by J on 10/7/08
Every time a librarian uses the word webinar, a little piece of his or her soul dies.
We just can't stress enough how important this is. Our souls are already in mortal danger from dealing with nasty business at the reference desk.

Caveat: An extra little piece of soul that drops off when the librarian uses "webinar" and "webcast" interchangeably. ACK!
