"You want to photograph me eating chicken?""Yep.""Well, if I let you, I need you to help me deliver a message.""What’s that?""I work at this library. And before that, I was coming here for twenty years. It’s my favorite place in the world. As many people know, the main reading room of this library is supported by seven floors of books, which contain one of the greatest research collections in the world. Recently, the library administration has decided to rip out this collection, send the books to New Jersey, and use the space for a lending library. As part of the consolidation, they are going to close down the Mid-Manhattan Library Branch as well as the Science, Industry, and Business Library. When everything is finished, one of the greatest research libraries in the world will become a glorified internet cafe. Now read that back to me."

I TAKE OVER ESQUIRE MAGAZINE'S TWITTER THIS SUNDAY -

I will be live-tweeting the Oscars™ for Esquire Magazine (@EsquireMag) this Sunday.

I pledge to call out every man who wears the long, “formal necktie” instead of a bow tie with his tuxedo as a COWARD.

If you’d like to hear six people do roughly eighteen different German accents, download Episode #004 of Andy Daly’s Podcast Pilot Project podcast.
