Cataloging Fridays: “Play Tic Tac Toe with a LIVE CHICKEN” edition

leave a comment »

The LIVE CHICKEN wins.This morning on my way in to work, I noticed that one of the five casinos I pass every morning – the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino – had a new billboard. It promised fame and fortune* if one was willing to embark upon a most challenging endeavor: playing tic tac toe with a “LIVE CHICKEN.” (Presumably, this is quite different from playing tic tac toe with a DEAD CHICKEN … which I actually think would be more challenging.)

In this week’s edition of Cataloging Fridays, I am cataloging the aforementioned billboard.

(I should also mention that this would be much more detailed if Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino would return my calls.)

Disclaimer: This record, in all its hypothetical glory, was not actually entered into any existing catalogs, and any mis-appropriations of MARC fields are not intended to offend any catalogers that have more experience cataloging billboards than myself.
