"Book, book, book!"

I heard the cutest joke last night while watching The Librarians, an Australian comedy about a Catholic bigot who's the head librarian at the "Melbourne Interactive Learning Center." I've adapted it from memory:

A chicken walks up to the desk at the library and says, "Book, book, book!" The librarian responds "Sure thing!" and gives her 3 books and watches her walk away. After a few minutes, the chicken returns and says, "Book, book, book!" The librarian gives the chicken three more books and says, "I'm a fast reader too!"

After another few minutes, the chicken comes back again and says, "Book, book, book!" Curious, the librarian gives the chicken three more books and follows her out the door. The chicken goes across the the street to a pond and gives the books to a frog who says, "Read it, read it, read it."
