When Librarians Attack!
The premise of the spoof is that a new DVD that depicts librarians attacking patrons is a huge hit. I was not offended mostly because it is so obviously a spoof. In fact I appreciated how it opened with a statement recognizing that librarians are underpaid (but I do disagree with the “frustrated” description — I know very few librarians who would describe themselves as frustrated. Overworked yes, but not necessarily frustrated).
The best part of the spoof is the final paragraph:
Fish and game wardens say librarians are unlikely to attack unless provoked, although they may view late returns of books as a threat. “If your book is overdue you should approach librarians with caution, holding the volume out at arm’s length with your hands palm down to show that you are not an aggressor,” says Billy Ray Lyman of the Missouri Department of Wildlife. “And don’t show fear–librarians can sense when you don’t have the two cents a day fine, and they will go for the jugular.”
