no dummy

i'm rockin the checkin room at work (the library) and, as occasionally happens, a book comes through a time warp from the eighties just to make me marvel at the fickle hand of the weeding gods.  it's called Ventriloquism for the Total Dummy and i am perplexed by the large hole that runs through the entire book at the upper left hand corner.  apparently something used to be attached there.  when i check it in, the computer makes a rude noise and displays the message DUMMY MISSING.

i feel like i dodged a bullet.  what could be creepier than a time-warped eighties book coming to me through the bookdrop, somehow dangling a hideously leering time-warped eighties wooden dummy from its hole?  gah.

besides, the message should really say DUMMY NOT INCLUDED.  we just provide the book, people.  you gotta bring yourselves.  bwahahaha.

    Were you rockin' the checkin room with… Snakes on a Plane?!Just checkin'. (You're right about the message being wrong — the library sure ain't missing any dummies.)

    more than likely it was either Snakes on a Plane or The Hush Sound's Like Vines Sampler. my current checkin-room-rockin obsessions.and you guys are right. if only all the other dummies in life were so easy to get rid of….but what keeps me up at night…is the thought that that dummy is loose somewhere… it could be anywhere… it could be…ANYONE…
