Tim Spalding at LibraryThing asks: “…if LCSH is a language (of sorts), how good is it for that most important role of languages—conveying insults?”
And of course since I collect headings that have amused me, I had to play…
I find it curious that there is no –Pain, since it could be used with many other headings. The closest I could get to my goal with this one was Buttocks–abscesses.
Some people just leave one speechless. One might call them Curiosities and wonders if one wanted to be nice.
Dam failures only works if spoken aloud.
Surely there are occasions to tell someone they need Anorectal function tests or that they need Defecation disorders–Diagnosis. I know I’ve at times wanted a Defecation–Fiction stamp to use on papers that I end up throwing across the room.
In fact the freefloating –Fiction can be used in so many places for sarcastic effect: Competent authority–Fiction, Ability–Fiction, Intellect–Religious aspects–Fiction, Food–Quality–United States–Fiction, or Hedge funds–Fiction.
And now back to work with me. Of course, I could stretch it and say this is work since I’m teaching more LCSH next week. But in reality we all know this is Procrastination. If Proposal writing in library science doesn’t kill me, not doing it will.
