Formidable Opponent

The justification: Okay, let's see. I'm a children's librarian. Librarians must make oodles of flyers and hand-outs for their branches. As such, they need to use a lot of clip art (still with me?). And what better way to celebrate such a need then with this hilarious posting?

The compromise: Obviously you guys don't care whether or not I stay topic as fully as I myself care. So here's what I'll do. Every day I can post one item that has only a tangential connection to children's literature. I don't want to turn into one of those Gee, Ain't This Funny blogs that are spotted throughout the internet. I just want to occasionally share things that are especially funny. Bad clip art, for example. Like this one...

Clip art of tires, maybe useful. Clip art of Lincoln, maybe useful.
But what possible use is there for this particular graphic? Is there a bevy of Lincoln-related tire-kicking memos going around?

Well check out the post then. They get better and better. I'm partial to the bull amongst the cows.

The ant just looked so... so... DIRTY.

Kind of like Nala in that one shot of The Lion King -- you know the one that I mean? Where she gives Simba the Queen of All Come Hither Looks? Yeech.

One could probably do a study on the ant to figure out why exactly a position of that sort strikes a person as naaasty. Sans genitalia, no less.

Who comes up with these things?

Living in the Land of Lincoln myself, I can testify that old Abe is quite a popular figure with advertisers in these parts -- so I can actually imagine that one being used. The others...er, no.

Right before I saw your post, I'd seen this. A clip art kinda day, methinks (though yours isn't quite as scarily OCD as this):

For the sake of my own sanity I won't tell you how long I watched this before it occurred to me that it was on a continuous loop. Now to rewire my shorted out brain.

Verrry nice.
