I am taking a wonderfully relaxing vacation this week, so updating has been not possible. Please send me any new entires you might have lying around so I can get back on it!

Or send me free tickets to stuff to do in San Diego while I am here.  :)

I promise all entries are anonymous and confidential! Multiple entries will be scattered so that they are disconnected.

If I get more of these sort I will have to make people guess what it is! I was sent this beauty from a fellow museum professional.

We all know that there is a time and a place for packing tape, I love the stuff! But this is a little extreme.

If you haven't guessed yet what lovely item is being choked in this frightening unopenable package, it is.

A pasta machine!!

On the plus side, it sure is not getting dusty...

First post.

Museums are rarely considered to be places of humor, but we giggle amongst ourselves all the time with the ridiculous stuff people do. Just for fun I want to give us our own little fail blog, a little bit funny, a little bit educational.  Any pictures posted will be anonymous, recognizable museum names will be blurred to protect the good names of our workplaces and employees.

Picture number 1: How NOT to number artifacts. each one of these is supposed to be an identifier for an artifact. I particularly like the question mark and the sudden addition of roman numerals that appear nowhere else.
