That’s LibRAry

I encountered a tour group yesterday on my way to work, a clump of parents and awkward teens gathered around a tour guide at the giant split button. As I passed I heard the tour guide tell them “This is the main undergraduate liberry.” I thought perhaps I’d misheard, then she continued “There are other smaller liberries around campus, the medical liberry…” She must have said “liberry” at least four times! Has this chick been taking elocution lessons from George W. Bush? I wonder how she pronounces “nuclear.” This, at an ivy league university. The admissions committee must be slipping.

    LibRAry be damned. Liberry is as natural as wuter.
