I’ve done a couple of “hot topic” displays in the Young Adult/Teen section: one on Gay Pride Month, a Banned Books Week display, one about Body Image, and one about Cat Calls and Street Harassment. I started to do a display concerning bullying, but the topic got me really upset and I’ll have to save it for another time. I’m too emotionally raw lately. I decided to switch it up a bit, as they say, and just do a dumb book joke display. Our color printer is running out of ink, so it only prints things in shades of blue. So, despite my best intentions to make a happy looking display, it’s downright gloomy. I had to throw out pictures of the Hulk because he looked like Violet Beauregarde on steroids (Get it? Because he was giant and blue? Nevermind).
This is what I came up with. I think some of the jokes will go straight over the kids’ and teens’ heads, but hopefully a hardcore book nerd will get a fraction of a laugh. Enjoy!
And now, some shots of the individual images:
Now, prepare yourself for my absolute favorite:
