For the librarians in the house...

There are some new breed librarians that bust stereotypes. And then there are those, who, while trying to bust stereotypes, end up reinforcing them even worse.

take this, for instance.

A dewey Decimal rap is dorky enough, but good god, get the lexicon right. "What's der word"? Where are you from, Wisconsin*? Even my mom would know it's "da word". And has anyone under 30 said "get down" or "bust loose" non-ironically in the last two decades? Egad.

Nothing like a middle-aged white lady trying to get through to "the kids" to provide you with a spine-rattling cringe.

*She's apparently Australian. That's no excuse for rapping like a midwestern farmwife circa 1886
