That text is somewhat questionable, +Serj Enoch 
If you read the link, it explains which tartan/sett he wore.

"The absolute best thing about library school is your peers. You will all have a Leslie Knope-ian intensity about something. It may be Star Wars, hockey, astrophysics, or that damn rock wall, but everyone brings some kind of obsession to the table. There is sure to be someone who will be a little too into board games. People will regularly discuss Weasleycest and Tami Taylor’s hair at parties, because if there’s one thing librarians get, it’s an enthusiast. We are all punk-ass book jockeys, and we want you to read our favorite book. And then maybe we’ll break down the Library of Congress Subject Headings afterwards."
Allison R. on how library school is actually exactly how you imagined it to be.

Oh so true! One of the reasons why I went to Library School.

Good thing they didn't have a candy machine.

So simple, a child could do it!

If you want that iPod, borrow a toddler.

“Dang… I got the toddler.  I was trying for the Rastafarian banana.”

That stork is soooo fired.  

The latest design in playpens!  

“Hey, Cleetus!  The trap done worked! “

The mother wasn't cited, but authorities are wondering where the toddler got the fake ID he used to enter the bar.

“Damnit!  Not again!  Earl, call the exterminator!  We've got toddlers in the claw machine!”

The latest marketing promotion for redneck bars:  daycare.  Parents can come get sloshed during the day while the child is safely ensconced in the “playpen”.   

Authorities decided to check the ball pit at a nearby McDonald’s, where they found a heroin needle, three Happy Meal toys, a desiccated but edible Big Mac, and two teenagers engaged in heavy petting.

“Bartender, there’s a toddler in the claw machine.”  
“Can’t be.  I used them all in the barbecue.”

Stop me if you've heard this one…  “A toddler walks into a bar…”

“Doc… I have these recurring dreams where I’m a small child, and I’m on sale at the local Wal-Mart…”

It used to be, kids set up a sign and tried to sell their younger siblings.  I guess this works better.

“Let’s go to Dave & Buster’s.  Their claw machine has dachshunds.”

At 5 PM, the bar replaces the toddler with a go-go girl.

"The Claw chooses who will go and who will stay."

A 3-year-old boy somehow crawled up into a claw machine and was busy playing with the toys inside while his mother frantically searched for him.

$400.

"You are bidding on a ONE OF A KIND set of original DC production art! Up for auction is a set of two pieces of original color production art - one color guide and one 3M for the Who's Who Update October 1987 wrap around cover! Both pieces are hand signed by colorist Anthony Tollin.

*This particular 3M actually has a copy of the "Who's Who Letters" page stapled to the back as well!

The color guide is complete with colorist Anthony Tollins's notations. Color guides were instrumental in the production of comics before computers. The sheets were printed with the line art and then given to colorist to complete with watercolors or inks. Colorists not only brought each page to life with their artistry, but they were also responsible for making sure that they properly coded each part of the page. The codes (YRB) indicate the different percentages of Yellow, Red and Blue that would be needed to produce the desired colors when printed. 

The 3M cover is comprised of 4 layers of acetate - Black, Yellow, Red & Blue. "
