I followed a link from Salon’s news feeds on a frumpy librarian action figure. The librarians were complaining that the action figure puts librarians back 20 years. The of frumpy clothes and “amazing shushing action” are what seems to have put them over the edge.
A quick web search turned up Archie McPhee’s page featuring the librarian action figure. I think it’s hilarious!
What’s even cooler, though, are some of McPhee’s other action figures. I want Einstein and Shakespeare!
