“Did you walk into a bar?”

The professor for my Reference class is brilliant. I love her and she’s really funny. Here’s an example after a student in class bemoaned “Reference is dead.”

DR: “The other day I was sitting with an accountant and a travel agent. My career as a librarian didn’t seem so dead then. An accountant’s job is being replaced by hundred dollar software–he feels very threatened.”

Miss Print (only because everyone else was thinking it): “Did you walk into a bar?”

DR: “No. This is true, so I don’t want to seem inauthentic, but we did walk into a Bar-Mitvah. I don’t know if that’s worse.”

Student: “That’s better actually.”
