Thus We Refute Darwin, #3,422.

Customer: I'd like to get an interlibrary loan please. How long would it take?

Dogsbody: An interlibrary loan? Typically, about a week to ten days.

Customer: That long? I wouldn't be able to get one by tomorrow?

Dogsbody: Er, no. Unless you can find a library anywhere that could get a book to us by tomorrow.

Customer: Oh - you mean the books actually come from other libraries?
