Day at the museum: Eccentric items from the Smithsonian
Jerry Seinfeld's puffy shirt
I hope this was the turkey/mashed potatoes/stuffing TV dinner.
Buzz Aldren's space suit (looks like he's a contestant on "To Tell The Truth")
Tito Puente's timbales (they're good and Puente)
Uranus looks lovely tonight
Not the most sophisticated exhibit but my personal favorite.
Washington D.C.'s Smithsonian Institution exists because a generous British scientist named James Smithson (1765-1829) wanted to increase knowledge among all mankind. He left his fortune to the United States government even though he never visited the country. We call this Eccentric with a capital E, and would like to tip our cocked hat to him.
This blog is devoted to old fashioned American roadside attractions... the wonderfully big, bizarre, crazy, wacky, quirky, weird, funny, unique and mundane sites you see travelling cross-country by car in the USA, where getting there really is all the fun!
