Happy Tuesday! Today’s topic for the Top Ten Tuesday linkup hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is “Favorite Bookmarks”. But, the idea to talk about what not to use as a bookmark sounded like more fun. And believe it or not, folks, most of these have actually been left behind as bookmarks in library books. Along with some other, much more gross, things I spared you from.
Honestly? You couldn’t just eat the bacon? Why torture the book with a slice it can’t eat but must host indefinitely?
Yep. This one has actually happened too. C’mon, people! A banana peel? You didn’t have a scrap of paper handy?
Hope you don’t want to read that page again because if you do use chewing gum as a bookmark you’re going to find yourself in a sticky situation 🙂
Bonus points if you use a saw blade as a bookmark for a horror novel…
Much like the saw blade, a gun as a bookmark may raise questions you’re not prepared to answer…
Really? What has that poor book ever done to you??
Not only are you making your book question its existence, but using a sock as a bookmark just perpetuates the pile of lonely socks without a match.
I’m pretty sure this should go without saying, but then again I thought the taco would too….
I mean… a spatula would make sense in a cookbook, I suppose, but probably isn’t the best idea if you were using said spatula for its intended purpose before sticking it in your book.
One would assume that no one would actually use a sandwich as a bookmark, but after the taco incident that made the rounds of the internets, nothing would surprise me anymore.
What about you? What are some other things we should not use as a bookmark?
