Miss Information is annoyed by random violenceToday the big, plushy library mascot made a visit to a nearby community fair where it was pelted with rocks and balls by a group of unruly children. Miss Information was not surprised. In fact, when the library announced its big plushy library mascot plans a couple of months ago she knew it was only a matter of time before the words "big, plushy library mascot", "pelted with" and "rocks" showed up in a blog entry. The balls were unexpected, though.
The costume is big and plushy so the staff member inside escaped unharmed. Unfortunately the big, plushy nature of the costume made self defense impossible. Besides it's against the big, plushy library mascot code to just start whacking kids upside the head with Roberts Rules of Order when they get out of line. There was another staff member assigned to big, plushy bodyguard duty but her license to kill had expired.
Later in the day, Miss Information found herself explaining to an extremely pregnant woman that the Harry Potter movies are, in fact, not documentaries.
Someone should save time and give that kid a rock as soon as it's born.
