Gallery 3, Episode 6 - Meeting Eighteen
The Geordie stand-up comedienne Sarah Millican provides the museum with something that got her through her divorce - pictures of animals wearing clothes. These include a picture of a pig in cow slippers and a dog in a bikini.
American neuroscientist David Eagleman proposes that the museum invents International Ignorance Day to celebrate all the things that as of yet we do not know. We cannot see most of the universe for starts, so there is a lot of missing stuff out there. Sadly, no-one yet knows when International Ignorance Day takes place.
Neil Gaiman, the author of such books as The Sandman and Stardust, gives the museum American comedian Jack Benny's vault. One of the earliest radio comedy shows, Benny created a miserly persona of himself and in his radio show he had a vault which amongst other things was guarded by a polar bear and had a very odd alarm.
The full episode title is "Meeting Eighteen: Pictures Of Animals In Clothes, International Ignorance Day & Jack Benny's Vault".
