Does that pencil skirt come with rails?

I had a funny exchange with a famous purveyor of tactical goods yesterday.

I received an email wondering
if I'd be interested in reviewing some of their gear, specifically a tactical backpack.

"No, I'm sorry," I replied. "I'm not very tactical at all, really. I'm a librarian."

Although, the mental image of me sitting at the reference desk dressed like a tiny mall ninja and shushing hobos sure does crack me up.

Hell, you could probably set up a webcam of tacti-Breda at work and charge for it

Alan said...

Breda already has a webcam.

Actually, a backpack would be the perfect thing for a librarian to review.

You could focus on practical book-hauling backpacky-ness rather than tacticool-ness.

Alan - That's her home cam. She needs a work cam too, so we can see the Russian stare at her chest and learn how she handles the porn hobos without killing them.

I'd take some vid of her current working spaces for you all, but she knows where I live.

As for the Tacticool BackPack, does it come in Rare Dark Harry Potter?

A ninja librarian? Sounds hot.

Robin said...

Of course it does, BobG, of course it does.

Mike W. said...

Of course it does Bob G. Ninja's wear skintight outfits and have pigtails.

On the other hand they're so sneaky you can't see them, so we'd never even see ninjaBreda on her webcam.

Hey, if you do not want the backpack, I will take it...

Just sayin' ;).

Shoulda said yes and had minions do the review. I woulda!

Not that Funky Winkerbean is that great a comic, but Funky's old study hall monitor rig (doughboy helmet, barbed wire, water-cooled Lewis gun) would be pretty funny for a librarian....

Tactical librarian backpack, for when books are really overdue, and you have to go and get them...
