A bunch of better idiots!

These “Weird Reference Questions” are from the Library Paraprofessionals Listserv. All of these are real and provide proof that a “better idiot” can be invented.

“Do you have a list of all the books written in the English language?”

“Do you have that book by Rushdie: ‘Satanic Nurses’?” (Actual title: “Satanic Verses”)

“I was here about three weeks ago looking at a cookbook that cost $
95. Do you know which one it is?”

“Can you tell me why so many famous Civil War battles were fought on National Park Sites?” hahahaha…what a bone head!

“Do you have any books with photographs of dinosaurs?” hmmm…I don’t recollect any camera-toting cavemen…do you?

“I’m looking for information on carpal tunnel syndrome. I think I’m having trouble with it in my neck.” (No…that’s your brain miss-firing.)

“I am looking for a list of laws that I can break that would send me back to jail for a couple of months.” (I know…how about shooting yourself? That would get you life in prison!)

“I need a color photograph of George Washington.” (Ok…hold on…I’ll check with the caveman…)

“Is the basement upstairs?” (Asked at First Floor Reference Desk) This one gets the golden stupidity award!
