Things I Like Thursday, Volume 3

Seen random stuff on the internet that you find hilarious or just want to share? Head over to Gina's to link up!

Okay, so it's now Friday in Australia. I had three hours of class last night learning how to assign Dewey numbers and I was kind of brain dead when I got home. But it's still Thursday in America, so it's TOTALLY OKAY. Right? Right.

Anyway, speaking of Dewey numbers, May is Information Awareness Month in Australia. Which means everyone should go visit their nearest library/archive/thing so that I can have a job once I graduate!! In the spirit of Information Awareness Month, check out this list of the 10 most challenged library books in America last year. Really, America? To Kill a Mockingbird is STILL causing controversy??

Still on the libraries theme, a university library in the US introduced puppies in the library as a destressing technique for students. YES PLEASE. (This one came via my university's library. Hopefully this means I will soon have access to puppies on campus *excited flailing*)

Next up, we have this video, which came courtesy of someone doing my course:
Totally fake, unfortunately. But undeniably brilliant!!

And finally, this has absolutely nothing to do with libraries, but Nikki sent me this last night and it's completely amazing. Ever wondered how Rice Bubble squares would perform as a stubby holder (American translation: "how Rice Krispy treats would perform as a beer cozy")? NOW YOU CAN FIND OUT.

What hilarious bits of nonsense have you found online this week?

  1. Holy geez. The Brontesaurus. That's genius.

    And, I definitely needed the translation on the last one. I was like, "Whaaaa?" and read it at least three times, trying to work it out, before I saw you wrote a translation.

    1. I actually had to Google "What do Americans call a stubby holder?" for that translation.

      And yes, I adore the Brontesaurus.

  2. Hey K, do you have to do an internship? Coz we have a bit of a library over here that could REALLY use some TLC - if you'd like to make it an internship/prac project I promise to write you a reeeeealy good Performance Report!

  3. Clearly we all need Rice Krispie/Bubble beer cozies/stubby holders. You know, because they're much more logical than those reusable ones... And a bit more sweet... And somewhat more fattening... Also a bit marshmallowy, which I'm not quite sure goes with beer (or at least not any bear I've never had).

    Also, that link has other fun things. HOW MANY CONDOMS CAN YOU WEAR.

    1. I saw that link!! I was too scared to click on it though... Also? I read that as "Bubble beer cozy" and was all "Is that like bubble tea, but with beer???"

  4. RICE BUBBLE. LOL. Your English is funny man.

    Also, living in the future wins again, of course. Lame.

  5. I go to the local library about once a fortnight, so I'm doing my best to drum up business ;-)

    I can't believe Brave New World is in that list either. I only read it for the first time a few years ago, but it would make a great high-school novel. It's only 'insensitive' if you can't deal with apocalyptic fiction...

  6. Alright, I clearly need to go back to uni. Puppies in the library! YES PLEASE.

    I mean I've never actually studied in a library - but I WOULD IF THERE WERE PUPPIES.

  7. Oh man, puppiiiiieeeeees...SQUEEEE! Fingers crossed you get puppies on campus, too. Also, To Kill a Mockingbird is STILL challenged? Good Lord. (Loooooove that book, one of my all-time faves and so humbling.)

  8. I would get nothing done in that library, but that's okay because puppies don't judge! They lick and nuzzle and make everything better!
