For the librarian who is not great at his/her job:
For the librarian who likes cat photos:
“Dude, I bet you I can sell this iPhone pic I took of my cat in the basement on Etsy.”

15 MINUTES LATER . . .

“Yes, but you never can not go back to not being a non-librarian.”
For the librarian who has everything:
. . . except an ornament made out of a starfish.
For the librarian that loves Harry Potter and Gilmore Girls:
For the retro librarian:
“Our library doesn’t need this. We got rid of our laserdisc player in 2000. But there’s something about that price that makes it so appealing.”
For the librarian who cares about cleanliness:
“How do you like my library soap?’
“What is this? Burnt taco meat sprinkled on top?”

When “vintage” goes too far.
