You're borrowing that kid? Did you check him out like a book?

A man walks into the library with 6 kids, all of which are calling him "Dad." 3 have blonde hair, 2 are Asian and one is black. 
A woman approaches him and smiles and says, "Wow! Are all of these kids yours?" 
man: "No, actually, just these 3 here" ::points to blonde kids:: 
"and we bought these" 2 ::points to Asian girls:: 
"and we're renting this one" ::black kid waves at woman and smiles, then quickly loses interest and comes to ask me questions about lizards::

Book girl: right, I'll just print it for you at the circulation desk. ::prints purchase confirmation email from for TEN COUCHES::

Remember the towers in the show The Wire? and how everyone used to sit on a ratty, old couch in the yard to watch what was going on? This is immediately what I thought of, only, you wouldn't want to waste a brand new couch for that, now would you?
