Ridiculous Library of Congress Subject Headings: Week of October 22, 2007


I often associate Ewan McGregor with polar bears. This is because I don't have cable and I end up watching PBS specials late at night. One such special was titled "The Polar Bears of Churchill," where Ewan ventures to a small Canadian town on the Hudson Bay. In Churchill, polar bears often encroach on the town's borders while looking for food and they have to be tranquilized from time to time. Ewan comments on these events with his traditional Scottish charm and he even plays guitar. I was smitten, I tell you. What else do Ewan and polar bears have in common? They both have unique LC subject headings: "Ewan McGregor, 1971-" and "Polar bear watching industry." Here are the rest of this week's unusual tags:
  • Saw filing - History
  • Love-hate relationships
  • Oz (Imaginary Place)
  • Businessmen - language
  • Megalomania
  • Cookery - Dogfish
  • Leopard men
  • Headlight glare - Cost effectiveness
