I love the LOC subject headings -- some of them are so obscure. I think my favorite when I worked reference was when a man wanted a book about swimming for senior citizens -- so, "swimming" and "seniors" right? Wrong. It was "exercise for the aged." He was not pleased.

And what about "cookery"?? Sorry, what century are we in???
