    It could be a D Movie: “Encyclopedia Salesmen in Sheboygan”
    Back in the mists of time, men wearing three piece suits would terrorize neighborhoods, stalking the unsuspecting, leaving no wallet or checkbook unturned, no child student’s library unmangled, they were selling ENCYCLOPEDIAS!

    Wonder if the teacher’s ever heard that excuse before?

    As near as I can tell it’s a cleaned up (and unfunny) version of the boy having his name spelled in the snow in his girlfriend’s yard. ( In her handwriting.)

    In the days before the internet, when the library was on the other side of town, my parents got their moneys worth out of the set they bought

    I didn’t just use them for school, I’ve always liked knowing stuff

    I had two sets of encyclopedias… World Book for the kids and Britannica for adult curiosity.

    Thanks to your reply, you are now on a domestic terrorism list. If you have blonde hair and blue eyes, your future is gone. The PC psychos are desperate for WASP/Nordic terrorists.

    Just try to use an old set of encyclopedias (from 1910 or so) as reference material for the Civil War, or an old cook book.
    The overview on the civil war has changed in this country, and how many cooks today know how to clean possums and squirrels, not to mention the difference between a slow oven and a fast oven.
    The cake recipe was everything by scratch, of course, they used very little sugar then and also had cuts of meat that you would have to search and special order them today.

    Did you hear about the new reference work for the hard-rock generation?

    It’s called the Encyclopedia Metallica!

    (Maybe I should crawl out, now…)
