Sofa, So Good

Recline And Fall Of The Laziness Empire

A museum dedicated to laziness has opened in Colombia's capital, Bogota. There are sofas placed in front of televisions, hammocks and beds - anything associated with the avoidance of work. The idea is to get people during the holiday season to think about laziness and its opposite, extreme work, and perhaps find a balanced conclusion. Visitors will have to shed their laziness long enough to get to the museum soon - it closes in a week.

FOOTNOTE: Arsenic and old laze.

What a great idea. Spending a good portion of my Sundays on a hammock would be heaven, lazy or not!

If I'm not real careful, they'll be asking me to plunk down my big ol' arse on one of those couches!!!
I'm glad your roses are doing so well. I cute mine way back last month in hopes of a beautiful bloom come spring.

This is one of the most original museums I have ever heard of. In the Netherlands some peculiar museums were recently opened. One of them is the Museum of Death.It shows all kind of funeral rituals all over the world and ways of mourning.
