A poltergeist terrorized the elementary school library, throwing books off shelves and ruinously reorganizing the card catalog.
The Dewey Decimal System was not designed with this type of disorder in mind.
“Students don’t need another reason to not read,” the librarian remarked in a faculty meeting.
“We don’t have the funds for an exorcism,” the principal countered, “but I’ll take this into consideration when I complete your evaluation.”
Left to her own devices, the librarian decided upon drastic action.
Through much trial and error, she slowly coaxed the entity to the gymnasium and introduced several dodgeballs.
The students were elated.
