Funky Signs: The books are bored

Story by Crystal Gabrielle. Photo Copyright © Crystal Gabrielle.

Driving through the village of Oracle, Arizona on my way to visit Oracle State Park (a dark skies park), I noticed this arresting sign at the local library:

The books are bored.
Come in and give them a tickle.

How could anyone resist such an appeal? If it wasn’t already after hours, I would have rushed in, joined the library and checked out some books just to save them from such a fate.

I ask you, which is worse: being bored, or being tickled with no way to defend yourself?
