News, but not the serious kind
Popular museum gets a facelift?
Blog Guy, since the year is almost over, can you give us a preview of what surprises the Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop has in store for 2011?
You bet. We’re busy gearing up for the start of our huge winter tourist season, with new exhibits and a grand reopening.
Winter? I would think summer would be your big tourist season.
Oh crap. I think you’re right, I can never keep that straight. Well, it’s too late to change our plans now.
Anyhow, we’re unveiling a variety of expensive new photos, on subjects ranging from the famous, like actor Robert Redford and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, to sports figures, to regular private citizens.
Wow. I know that wise purchases can make or break a museum, as we saw recently with The Louvre. What was the single most expensive piece your museum acquired in 2010?
That would be our new logo.
You mean that statue of Abe Lincoln making a goofy face and holding a doughnut?
Yep, we think that’s going to turn everything around.
Oh. Good luck with that logo thing, Blog Guy, and I hope you’re able to withstand the crush of January tourists.
