Parade of Freaks!!
Today was like the dam burst, or like the Freak Bus let off right in front of our door. After two weeks of mellowness we had an exceptionally busy day that included appearances by numerous people requesting income tax forms (they must be expecting windfall returns), The Hobo, Special Ed, who kept orbiting the Reference Desk making intermittent appearances, our neighborhood transvestite who breezed in and breezed out after browsing Children’s Videos, and Porn Man who, pack in tow, dropped anchor for the duration of the evening. I’m actually surprised that we weren’t inundated by the homeless since it’s supposed to hit a balmy 13º outside tonight.
Anyway, Porn Man stuck to his M.O. by unpacking his mammoth backpack near the Internet workstations where he meticulous laid out in linear fashion, two pink razors, a pink can on Skintimate shaving cream, a bottle of orange Gatorade, and a jar of Tums… LMAO!! He then plugged both his video camera, and cell phone into the wall behind our microfilm cabinets allowing them charge. He used up his time, presumably scouring the Internet for new material to spank off to, and saving only the “best” stuff onto his flash drive for later perusal.
True to form, after his time was up on the Internet, he asked to sign in to one of our word processing machines, presumably to leisurely view what he just downloaded. After a while, he began printing, but much to his dismay, the ink was running low so he summoned me over to fetch a new cartridge. I obliged. Just before closing, he came over to the Desk, handed me the image below, and said that it was still printing “like this:”
I can only imagine what the rest of this series of images consists of…
