I’ve never been much of a bookmark kinda guy. I would always end up losing or forgetting them so, like a monster, I either folded the page where I left off or simply remembered where I was. Of course, if your book is borrowed, folding pages is just plain rude so sometimes one needs to improvise.

However, there is improvising and then there is this. Librarian Amanda Mae took to Twitter recently to share probably the most unusual bookmark substitute that you are ever likely to encounter.

Just, ew. How and why was such a heinous idea ever conceived? Was it an act of desperation, quickly forgotten? Maybe revenge against a particularly evil librarian? Or perhaps simply a case of misplaced lunch?

Twitter was instantly set ablaze with righteous indignation and theories about the mystery taco with some outraged at the disrespect shown to the book.

While others were more concerned about the state of the poor taco. Who leaves tacos just lying around like that?
