I’m ROTFL because just a few minutes ago, while composing an informal essay on the history of bibliographic description, I wrote the following sentence:
The result is library jargon solidified in an obscure
data structure. Moreover, in an attempt to make the
surrogates of library collections more meaningful, the
information of bibliographic description bloats to fill
much more than the traditional three to five catalog
cards of the past.
