Always with the drama

Whatever's going on, it doesn't look dishwasher safe

Praying for a happy ending

Don't lose these, I don't have spares

This is never going to come out

Catholic bouncy castle (when Jesus died for our sins, that included sacrilege)

Ensuring Bessie is milked on time

Who knew they could pounce

Potter's field of dreams

This is a prime example of the artist's bucolic period

If you're not going to put this on Instagram please leave

Guardian Soulmates attract dictionary pics

If C-3PO had a cycle of rebirth

A fight broke out over who was fairest of them all

He'd made the mistake of asking for a close shave

For "Pubic Transport" substitute "A Streetcar Named Desire”. See? Sometimes censors have good ideas.

Modern art: nothing to be afraid of

Make a painting in your head. These are the colours you can use. You have until the metronomes stop.

Not every exhibit is ready for fame

Always have an exit plan

There's even art in the walls. At first they thought it was mice.

The lion doesn't sleep tonight

Ever since Pulp Fiction you could never just put a sock in it anymore

Questioning how meaning and value are assigned through the authority of institutions? Check.

Now that you’ve asked nicely, I’m happy to do the dishes

My first visit to the recently reopened Wellcome Galleries in the Science Museum.

Those familiar with the venue may remember the previous Medicine Galleries. Perched as an afterthought, in what felt like the museum's attic space, this was an old-fashioned place of aged wooden cabinets, which were themselves something of an exhibit. Quite magical in their own way, but hardly appealing to a diverse, modern audience.  Londonist

The old place was wonderfully atmospheric, well worth the climb. The new place is more... antiseptic. It's also very much open plan – big enough to fly a plane through, as you'll see.

The best bike for the bonk

Some assembly required

Wellcome Collection ‘Cult of Beauty’ exhibition
Quote from: ArabellaScott
It's the anti Enlightenment. The knowledge and expertise has been sucked out of everything in favour of a warped fairytale narrative of Be True To Your Self and Follow Your Dream.

They may as well hang a Live, Laugh, Love sign on the wall and be done with it.
