    Moby Thick

    | New Orleans, LA, USA | Uncategorized

    (A customer comes to our help desk, looking upset.)

    Customer: “My daughter’s teacher assigned this book. It’s totally inappropriate for a twelve year old! I was hoping you could suggest something else.”

    Me: “What’s the book, ma’am?”

    Customer: ”I don’t want to say the name out loud. There are children present.”

    (The customer hands over the assigned reading list. The book is ‘Moby Dick’.)

    Me: “It’s not a dirty book, ma’am. Moby Dick is a story about a man and his hunt to kill an elusive white whale. It’s actually rather good. I read it when I was about your daughter’s age.”

    Customer: “Well, they should name it something different. You should tell the author person he needs to change the name.”
