Overseen at the book return slots at the library. This vandal with a juvenile sense of humor evidently thought it would be hilarious to change depository to sepository.

Which might have been funny . . . except it’s spelled suppository. Duh.



  1. Omigod, this is fantastic! Unfortunately, the vandal’s too stupid to know exactly HOW funny his vandalism was. (This is a case of “we’re laughing AT you, not WITH you, buddy…”)

  2. I know! There was so much that was great about how bad this was . . . including that it’s at the library of all places!

  3. Ha! Great catch. Suppositories aren’t an area of interest or expertise with me, but aren’t they things one would insert, and not receptacles?

  4. Good point. Extra irony, I suppose.

  5. If you’re a juvenile ass like me, it’s still funny.
