News, but not the serious kind
And the second-best museum is…
Blog Guy, I’m having an argument with my piano tuner’s haberdasher…
My main purpose in life is to settle arguments. What is it?
We were trying to decide on the second-best museum in the world, next to your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, which we both agree is number one.
Anyways, is number two the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, or the Louvre, in Paris?
Sorry, I’m not familiar with those. I’m sure they’re probably both okay.
WHAT? And you’re a travel writer? Then what would be your choice?
I’m very partial to the St. Bernard Dog Museum, in Martigny, Switzerland.
I love those sweet dogs and their little kegs of brandy. I almost always run into the pope when I’m there. Look, they just showed some new puppies yesterday.
You’re a dimwit! So all they have at this place is nice big dogs, cute puppies and lots of brandy?
Sure. What else would you look for in a museum? Or anywhere else, for that matter?
