A Covert Operation for Drugs?

I can't help it, I must share these library stories because I think they are hilarious.

We give away bookmarks at my library.  This is not so unusual, what with all the books we are loaning out and all.

And we have a trademark series that says ANY this, ANY that, ANY this, and then ends with ANY  ____and the name of the genre.  At least, that's pretty much the gist--I haven't memorized them.
They are meant to suggest that we can connect you with anything you are looking for.

So one young patron is looking them over at the desk, kind of taking them in and she gets to:

ANY Heroine

"Any heroine??  Isn't that illegal?"

I guess I should clarify: Comments like these really do crack me up.  I am not smoking crack.

For my part, I am perfecting the art of laughing only with my eyes.


  1. Thank you for sharing the best of what I'm sure is a long list of funnies you hear at work!
