The word moot is an archaic term meaning "argue, debate, discuss." In early English history, a moot was a meeting to discuss local affairs. Moot comes from the Old English gemot, meaning "meeting."
Haha, this gave me a good laugh! Librarians are very serious indeed.
Okay, THAT just made my day.One of the only things I regret about not living in the U.S. is the lack of a daily infusion of Pearls Before Swine!! Thanks for this, on a number of levels!
:D That is great! I love the 'please'. Serious, but with manners....except where pertaining to breaking windows.
Did I ever tell you that this site is linked through our library's website? Hope you don't mind. I don't know if anyone has ever found and used it.....you have to look. It is here: http://www.owenlib.org/index.php?view=newsfeed&catid=44%3Abooks&id=21-bookmoot&option=com_newsfeeds&Itemid=169
I posted this at the circ desk with a sign saying "See? I may be annoying, but it could be worse!"
HA! One of the fourth grade teachers left this in my box, with the note, "this isn't about to be YOU, is it?" TOO funny!
