From the bizarre to the bizarro.......

The Library has always been looked upon as a source of wisdom, learning and therapy.

Thanks to the New York Public Library for these important metaphysical and surreal reference enquiries.  Enjoy :)

1.  Why do 18th-centure paintings have so many squirrels in them, and how did the tame them so they wouldn't bite the painter?

2.  Please give me the name of a book that dramatises bedbugs.

3.  How much did Napoleon's brain weigh?

4.  What does it mean when you dream you are being chased by an elephant?
