  3. Seeing this painting from the late Bromantic Period, I was prompted to find more like it and serendipitously discovered http://www.museumofbadart.org/ -- MOBA. No, really. Located in Boston in the basement of a community theater "opposite the men's room," MOBA is to MOMA what lime jello with pineapple and cottage cheese is to creme brulee. Try it, you'll like it.

  4. It's either that, or may be confused with Duke of Transvestia.
