Ironic Wink

Yes, librarians use punctuation marks to make little emoticons, smiley and frowny faces in their correspondence, but if there were one for an ironic wink, or a sarcastic lip curl, they'd wear it out.” Marilyn Johnson, This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All

More shifts than usual this week. Lots of chances to practise my ironic wink, haven't mastered the sarcastic lip curl. Thank goodnes I don't have to grown an ironic moustache!

What's an Ironic Moustache you ask? Sounds scary, and it is my friends, it is! 
The urban dictionary .com tells me that an ironic moustache is:

Generally adorned by a HIPSTER: an ugly moustache grown initially as a joke and to impress one's friends with the level of commitment necessary to maintain it. These moustaches often remain with the wearer far longer than they are funny and become a part of the person's ‘look’.
Jameson: Dude, Steve looks pretty gross these days. I don't think he's washed his denim jacket in a long time and his hair is awful!  Marc: No doubt - and his ironic moustache really isn't helping.
