of course that's missing

So a friend mentioned in passing today that she's about to take a trip to L.A., and that one of her destinations is The Museum of Jurassic Technology.  (Which, if you've never been to, you need to visit.  Don't ask questions, just go.)  Since there was connectivity and a browser at hand, the conversation led to a quick visit to the MJT's website.  And that led, naturally, to their online museum shop, which is chock full of great products like The Eye of the Needle View-Master Reel and The Cone of Obliscence Pedestal.  (Ahhh, if only they resold such goods through Amazon, then I could add them to my wishlist.)

Fans of the museum will relish the fact that the "recommended books" section of the gift shop is naturally missing Mr. Wilson's Cabinet Of Wonder (subtitled "Pronged Ants, Horned Humans, Mice on Toast, and Other Marvels of Jurassic Technology," and should be read only after a pilgrimage to Culver City).
