Brigands and swine

I was ordering some living math books via interlibrary loan, and laughed out loud to see that The Great Take-Away by Louise Mathews, a subtraction story, is catalogued under the following subjects in our library system:

Brigands and Robbers
Swine -- juvenile fiction

Kudos to the unknown cataloguing librarian with the good vocabulary and even better sense of humor.
