Okay, sometimes we take ourselves too seriously

Here's a funny post from The Onion about Denny's archives mentioned on the Archives listserve today.

My favorite:

"Prior to this, we could only speculate about the initial public reaction to Moons Over My Hammy."


The comment-card archive charts not only the quality of Denny's service over time, but also patrons' responses to select menu items. Of particular interest to scholars is the nation's initial reaction to what would become Denny's most popular menu item, the Grand Slam Breakfast.


"By examining these comment cards, we have unique insight into not just Denny's, but the tapestry of food service heritage itself," Brayton said. "Here is a history writ large, with little yellow golf pencils."

Puh-lease. Do we REALLY need to preserve EVERYTHING?
