["Charles deLuge and Books" appears on screen, as scene opens with a young male librarian (black hair, blue shirt, black pants, black tie) sitting on the floor reading a book, when he looks up and speaks directly to the camera in a thick "Thurston Howell III"-style accent]
CHARLES DELUGE: Mmm, hello ... Why, hello there! I'm Charles deLuge!
[he chuckles to himself]
CHARLES DELUGE: I was just finishing up reading HP Lovecraft ...
[he holds up the book he was reading, then laughs maniacally]
CHARLES DELUGE: Not, not really a comedic writer ... but he did write some weird stuff. His fiction's some weird shit!
[he chuckles to himself]
CHARLES DELUGE: Pardon my French.
[he puts the book down behind him]
CHARLES DELUGE: Now, while I've got you here, I'd like to talk to you about something important. I'd like to talk to you about your children. Your children ... and books.
[he breathes in deeply]
CHARLES DELUGE: Increasingly, I've heard some disturbing things ... I've heard, as I'm sure you have, that children are now hollowing out their books and putting tiny bags of crack in them.
[a canned laughtrack plays in the background, as he attempts to "compose" himself]
CHARLES DELUGE: Sorry to have to take a moment of silence, but ...
[he breathes in deeply, then continues]
CHARLES DELUGE: I was appalled when I heard this ... as I'm sure that you were. Such a terrible abuse of these sensitive creatures!
[he pauses]
[the canned laughtrack plays again]
CHARLES DELUGE: Such misuse of such classical, classical beasts of literary ... iron!
[he turns and grabs a copy of Ellen Hopkins' "Crank"]
[the canned laughtrack plays again]
CHARLES DELUGE: Now why would you put crack in "Crank?" I don't get it!
[he runs his hand over the cover]
CHARLES DELUGE: You see this? Paper. Beauty. Love.
[he leans in close to the camera]
CHARLES DELUGE: I would make love to "Crank" ... I would!
[he waves his finger at the camera, then puts the book down]
CHARLES DELUGE: Another example is ...
[he stops (as if trying to think of an example), then grabs another book from the shelf behind him]
CHARLES DELUGE: The complete works of Lewis Carroll!
[the canned laughtrack plays again]
CHARLES DELUGE: Now I know for years there have been rumors of his ... deranged sensibility, but there's no reason to contrariwise crack it open and slip crack inside of a rabbit hole-shaped square!
[the canned laughtrack plays again]
CHARLES DELUGE: Square-shaped rabbit hole ... Um, and put the crack bag in there and then write on it "For Alice!"
[he makes air quotes with his hands, then shakes his head before putting the book back behind him]
CHARLES DELUGE: Yes yes, and that ... is important.
[a female voice interrupts him, as someone reaches in from off camera and hands him a book]
ASSISTANT: [from off camera] Mister deLuge, we finished hollowing out this book as deep as we can for your crack, sir.
[he gives a nervous laugh, then grabs the book]
[he tries to hide the book behind his back, all the way smiling broadly at the camera (as if he's got nothing to hide)]
CHARLES DELUGE: Ahem. Um ... So, keep these classic literary beauties out of your childrens' hands, and let them find something else for their "drug needs."
[he makes air quotes with his hands again, then wags a finger at the camera]
CHARLES DELUGE: I'm Charles deLuge ... Goodnight.
[he smiles as the camera begins to pan back, then takes the book behind his back and opens it up ... when he gets a confused look on his face, and starts yelling to his assistant off camera]
CHARLES DELUGE: You, you forgot to put the crack in here! Where's the, the hollowed out ... there's no bag!
