Sometimes You Just Have to Laugh...

Unshelved is a web-based cartoon that, well, read for yourself. It is sometimes frustrating (as in "I wish I could say that"), sometimes facepalmingly (ok, I think I just made a new word) all too true; and most often funny. If you work in a library, and you can't find an experience from your time there in one or more of these strips, you either have a highly selective memory or you aren't trying very hard.

If you work in an academic or school library, and you haven't experienced something similar to today's strip,  you must never have talked to a student...

And to adapt a phrase from your favorite shampoo bottle, "Read. Laugh Out Loud. Repeat."

All hail Gene Ambaum and Bill Barnes...
