Gridiron Follies

Wherefore Art Thou, Playbook?

The star college fullback knew his way around the locker room better than he did the library or classroom.

So when a librarian saw the gridiron star roaming the stacks looking confused, she asked how she could help.

"I have to read a play by this Shakespeare dude, by tomorrow," he told her.

"OK, that's no problem. Which one?" she asked.

He scanned the shelves, scratching his head and answered, "The Bart, or Willy, something geeky like that."

"Wow, that's really sad," said Bob, "but still, couldn't you find someone to take the seat like a relative or a close friend?"

"No," the man replied, "they're all at the funeral!"
