Thank you, Arlen Walker, for making my point.
By taking the joke about Conan the librarian out of context, altering it,
and clumsily sticking it into a technical document, the writer fouled up.
Almost no reader would "get it." That writer, like most of us, doesn't know
how to handle humor as deftly as Weird Al.
