For those of you who don't live in Museum World, you probably won't be surprised to hear that those of us who DO live in Museum World have our own list serves. Most of the time the list serve is a good source of collegial expertise, sometimes it's a good source of humor, and some days it's just an exercise for the old Delete key.
Here's my latest favorite quote from the list serve:
"We have a table owned by President Millard Fillmore. I once wrote a label that said:
'This table was once owned by Millard Fillmore. Unless you have been President of the United States, do not touch or put anything on it.' "
This is solid gold humor in the museum world. In posts to come I will highlight more museum humor. Don't be afraid.
