Two weeks spent watching World Cup Football on the widescreen in the 
Cataloging Cave left the Book Elves quite bitter about the fact that the 
lawn in front of the Cave, though serving as quite an adequate croquet 
field, is very much too small for football. Such problems are not the

featured on Wide World of Sports anytime soon, but we are working on a 
proposal for cable tv for a show called "Stupid Things Drunk Elves Do 
with Big Mallets".

with an assortment of contusions, concussions, and broken egos, they 
finished our latest catalog-
