Library Wars, Episode I: The Archive Menace
Me: So this girl in my Victorian Studies class is doing her MLS, she works at one of the libraries, and she brought in this big, scary pocket knife that her boss gives to all his favorite librarians.
Friend With MLS: It's in the Librarian Code.
Me: She also told us all about all the tricks thieves use to filch things from archives. I now believe all librarians are part of a secret society of vigilante Indiana Joneses. But she gave away all the secrets.
Friend With MLS: We have to kill you now.
Me: Well, I hate to disappoint you, but all Victorianists are part of a secret society of steampunk archive raiders. And I'm afraid you just declared war.
