lol, the joke's on her. that little girl probably jailbroke her Kindle weeks ago and jacked her local library's entire collection to upload to her public fileshare.

I get it, but these kind of cartoons do make the library-card side seem a bit patronizing, no?
First off, a library card is not a device.
Second, my cell phone will soon be about the size of a library card.
Third, the paltry collection that ebook vendors offer and the weird check-out "limits" that library patrons get from them are nothing compared to what's available for ebook readers. The only benefit is that it's free.
Fourth, comparing a library card with a Kindle is like comparing a television and a Blockbuster card. The card itself does nothing.
It's a good thing that this is a one-panel cartoon and that the little girl looks too polite to tell that lady a little something.
