I’m sure you will agree that all the best museums have large collections of dead animals, although the are certainly museums who do not do dead animals right. The Boston Museum of Science, for example, does not know how to display their taxidermied collection to best effect- they are all threadbare and not at all hilarious. The New Bedford Whaling Museum, on the other hand, combines the pathetic horror of whaling with the inherent hilarity of taxadermy to wonderful effect.

“Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax, of cabbages and kings.”
