Men Like Me

Every so often, a gentleman with long, pointy fingernails and an entirely unbuttoned shirt comes into the library. He always wants help making a photocopy from the unabridged dictionary.

"I'm gonna send it to [local congressperson]," he says. The page has a picture of a bat skeleton on it, and he mutters something about mummified bats.

I make the copy, then go to take the dictionary back to the shelf, but he stops me.
"Let me carry that for you. Men like me can lift 600 pounds!"
