| Right | September 6, 2021

Dear readers,

Today is National Read A Book Day in the US, and what better place to start reading than the library? There’s something truly serene about a library, surrounded by books and hushed voices and those return date stamps. (Do they still stamp the return date in books? I confess I haven’t been to a proper library in years. Whoops.)

However, when you run into patrons like these, the peaceful atmosphere of the library dissolves pretty quickly. We’ve rounded up 12 stories from our archives about library patrons that will make you want to throw a book at them!

, | Right | September 3, 2021

Dear readers,

I think it’s safe to say that in the last year and a half or so, we’ve all consumed a lot more movies and television than usual. And that’s totally reasonable; a lot of us have been stuck at home a lot more, and watching the struggles and triumphs of our favorite characters can help distract us from the real world, which is often a lot less simple or pleasant.

Today, we’ve rounded up 11 stories from deep within the archives of the Movies & TV tag (each of these stories is nine years old or older!) about people who manage to complicate even the simple joy of watching a good TV show or movie! So, grab your popcorn and get comfy!

 

Thorry Potter & The Norsely Hallows – Hits from the comments: “It’s not Harry Potter because Voldemort doesn’t have a Norse.”

Not So Crazy About Tim And Daisy – Would you prefer it be made with rage?

Doctor Sue – Sometimes you wish you could just sonic screwdriver the stupid right out of these people.
