Buttocks — Fiction
Full credit (or blame, depending on how you look at it) goes to MK Eagle and Gretchen Kolderup on this one. It’s a pretty simple post. Hardly worth mentioning . . . except that at heart I think we’re all 10-year-olds. And it’s completely librarian related, so I don’t even know if you’ll be as amused as we were but . . .
Did you know that there’s a subject heading that’s “Buttocks — Fiction” for children’s literature?
That’s right. A whole subject heading list. When Eagle and Kolderup discovered it they realized that you could easily create a “Buttbook buttlist”. Or you could play a rousing game of “Guess the book!”. Here are some of the headings for the titles we were looking at:
By the way, by writing this post I am undoubtedly guaranteeing that I’m going to meet my untimely end before I have a chance to write another one. People will be trying to say supportive things about me and my life and when they turn in somber thought to my blog THIS will be the post that greets them.
