@free_publicable_books_from_oreilly = ();

    I'm sure O'Reilly would be delighted with you publicising all of the books they currently have in print.

      So do I. So I choosed to pass an empty list as the @free_publicable_books_from_oreilly array. Ok, explaining it would make this a no-joke at all. But who cares? The most important thing is that it stopped the not-so-funny guy and I'm having a litte fun telling this history.
