Library jokes it’ll move Lance Armstrong books to fiction section

This final note today, perhaps the perfect punctuation mark to the Oprah Winfrey/Lance Armstrong interview last week.

It comes to us courtesy of the Manly Library — that’s one of the local libraries down near Sydney, Australia. There was a sign posted this past weekend: “All non-fiction Lance Armstrong books will soon be moved to the fiction section.”

Sadly, it was just a prank, posted by an over-eager — but spot on-the-mark — part-timer at the library.

Good one, though, huh?
