    Oh dear. I was a library clerk in a jr. high school before I retired.

    Today’s strip makes me sad. Librarians today can be truly awesome and don’t deserve this outdated stereotype. http://flavorwire.com/380345/10-of-the-coolest-librarians-alive/view-all

    @Kab Buch

    You’re right Kab it isn’t, but how many kids could resist something like that?

    Lynn’s Notes:

    For the new release of this strip, the dialogue was changed to read, “Hey, guys, what’s short and round…” I knew I would still get negative mail but perhaps fewer complaints than when it was first printed. People don’t want to see derogatory remarks of any kind, even if it’s exactly what two little boys would say. I could have deleted the strip, but I rather liked the gag!

    This looks like a library in a school. I didn’t have much to do with the library in the schools I went to. I’m not even sure if we had one. Sports were pushed so heavily and academics were so unimportant that there was really no reason for a library. Plus, I always had jobs after school when there wasn’t sports.

    In my high school, wiseacres would just add on “it”!

    And “spot on” belongs in detention.

    Complaints about the original caused a word to be changed here.
