“But the plans were on display . . .”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a torch.”
“Ah, well the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard.”

If you haven’t read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, do yourself a favor and go get it NOW.  I’m going to recommend it to the Monmouth-Roseville District 238 School Board when I speak to them on April 17.
