Note to Reader: There are so many possible jokes packed in that title, and caused me to contemplate deleting this post before publication. But your esteemed Editrix would have felt remiss at passing up a opportunity to relieve my most excellent readers of the drudgery of reading more of the politics of the day, and of politicians who act like another part of the human anatomy we all have. That said, I apologize in advance for this post....
That would be the Vagina Museum set to open November 16th at London’s Camden Market, specifically. The grand showcase of unshowables is on a mission to spread the word on "gynecological anatomy and health." And to get you liquored up, I guess, at that wondrous place, the "world’s first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to vaginas."
But some people are concerned about its petition for a alcohol license far more than being known for actually having a Vagina Museum in their neighborhood.
"We have no doubt that the museum will try to ensure that no inappropriate parties will be allowed, but stag parties are not known for their respectfulness and hen parties can also be raucous and difficult to control."Yeah, Drunken Hen Parties!!
"If parties become rowdy, they will be removed by security and then end up on our streets, creating public nuisance."And what if those stags and hens collide? Treachery could ensue says the chair of the Tenants Residents Associations, Camden Town. She expressed worry that the museum is "actively seeking" hen and stag nights.
Nevertheless, on Thursday, the erected salute to unmentionables was granted its license. Originally, the museum had applied to sell booze Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight. That was so, I suppose, you could say to your buddy, "Hey, it’s 11:00 at night. Let’s go down to the Vagina Museum and grab a beer."
Also granted: the ability to show films between 10 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. Monday thru Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sunday. Films. What kind of .....oh never mind. There was just one condition imposed by the licensing panel: No more than 100 people may be inside the Vagina Museum at any one time. So go the rules and regulations of an esteemed community ornament.
So if you are in Jolly Ole London on or about November 16th, the line-up for the gallery’s opening exhibit will be "Muff Busters: Vagina Myths And How To Fight Them." And be sure to stop off at the bar.
