Ohio Library Applies “He’s a 10, but…” Trend to Popular Books
I don't know about you but, I love seeing establishments apply online trends to their brand. Especially, when it's a place that could use a little extra love, like a library.
Meigs County District Public Library, in Ohio, recently took the "He's a 10, but..." trend and applied it to a few of their displayed books. For those unfamiliar with the trend, people, especially on Tiktok, will record a video presenting their friends with a scenario to see where someone, who might be a 10, will rank for them. For example:
He's a 10 but, only speaks in Deadpool references. The friend may reply with, "Oh, then he's a 2," or, "he's a 15." You can check out this Tiktok for even more clarification:
Is it a ridiculous trend? Maybe. But, applied to books? It's amazing.
In a recent Facebook post, Meigs Country District Library shared their own "He's a 10 but..." complete with red flag stickers on their books. Take a look:
As a Pride and Prejudice fan, the description of, "He's a 10 but, he's bossy and a drama queen," is such a perfect way to capture who Mr. Darcy was. However, someone named Scott F. left a comment on Meigs Library's photo that says,
While the Austen comment isn't wrong, I'd have suggested: "He made the worst marriage proposal in history."
Also, very accurate.
The expected red flag has been attached to the Fight Club book. He's a 10 but...you can't talk about it.
Game of Thrones fans should love this one:
And, perhaps my personal favorites, are "He's a 10 but he forgot to check for a pulse," for Romeo and Juliet, and, "He's a 10 but, you should stay out of his attic," for The Picture of Dorian Gray.
Bravo, Meigs Country District Public Library. Bravo.
