Public Libraries = Bathroom for Homeless People.
And thanks to 'Modern Family' I have another one to add to my library folder.
Claire: What do you think the public library is for?
Haley: I thought that was a bathroom for homeless people.
I wish 'Parks and Recreation' would come back on, they were always good for a library bashing. Instead we have that stupid 'Outsourced' show. No lie, I really did enjoy the movie, but the television show is just horrible.
I also like the Australian television series, 'The Librarians,' but I wouldn't want to see it become a mainstream show in the States for various reasons. Most librarians I know do not have a, let's say open sense of humor and they take offense to anything that makes fun of the profession. Have some humility people! More importantly, anything that goes mainstream tends to "sell out" so to speak, and faces backlash. Let's keep this library bashing on the down-low.
Oh, unless your IP address is in Australia you can't stream the videos. But you people are librarians with librarian research skills, let's just say that there are ways to watch the series.
