Learning is Pun

Today's Bizarro is brought to you by Cheap Thrills for Kids Under 12.

I'm on my way home to Brooklyn in a few hours. Had a great time in NoCal, thanks for inviting me.




Saw the new multi-bazillion-dollar science museum in Golden Gate Park yesterday. In the humble, uneducated opinion of CHNW and I, the architecture of the museum is very cool, the content is pretty dull.

They have an indoor rainforest, but it isn't as good as one I saw in Dallas built 8 or 10 years ago. They have an aquarium that's pretty nice, but I've seen many better ones. I missed the planetarium, so I can't comment. The roof is a cool idea with grass and plants all over it, but that is more about architecture than science. That's about it. Unless you're an architecture buff, it isn't worth the $25 admission fee. San Francisco's Exploratorium is better, in my opinion.

More about the book events I did while here later. Hope you like today's corny pun cartoon. Can't wait to be home.

Thanks for the link to the Exploratorium. Of COURSE the first thing I did was click the button. :-)

Being a fine artist, I hope you went to the de Young Museum while in SF. They currently have a great Maya Lin exhibit and usually have other great contemporary art. The museum is a very interesting building, too.

Fran said...

To be fair, I believe I used the word "brilliant".

Puns are absolutely not the lowest form of humor. Really. They are hysterical.

There's an indoor rainforest in Dallas? I've lived in Dallas my entire life without that profound knowledge... I suppose I should visit sometime!
