A sign commonly seen in libraries
, featuring various insects
crawling in, around, and through
what appear to be precious
texts. The moral
is as follows: if you eat in the library, your residue
will attract various lower orders, which will in turn feast on the brittle pages of Webster 1913
and its kin. So in effect, your inability to save the Cheetos
for later leads to ancient knowledge lost forever.
It's in the same guilt-inducing vein as the glares the librarians beam at you if you happen to put your feet up on a desk. The sign seems to nag, "You know, we don't have to let you read the Swimsuit Edition for free."
