What the Hell is Happening Here?

Okay, so it LOOKS like a dapper, pencil-moustached, gay male librarian is being attacked by 2 over zealous women “readers”, one plain one pretty, but no matter, he is not interested in either. Unusual that the librarian isn’t a hair-bunned, be-speckled spinster, but rather John Waters, but moving on, the ladies don’t have anything specific they want, just “books”. Where is the card catalog? This comic looks old enough that the Dewy Decimal System would still be being employed. Isn’t that where they ought to be looking rather than bum-rushing the librarian desk? OR if they don’t care what KIND or book, why not just pull random books off the shelves all around them? My guess is that they are romantically interested in the effete librarian, and said librarian is understandably terrified. Any other guesses?

About kara

We know our letters just fine, and we know our numbers to a certain point, but books were always the realm of four-eyed poindexters with bowler hats and cravats. That’s why it pleases us so that America’s proud illiterates are finally stepping up and pushing back against the crushing tide of education that threatens to swallow us all into its gaping maw of checked facts. Champions of the Ignorantiat will not like it here.
