original junk

I had a tour through the design history of the 20th century at the museum. A boy of 12 points to a Vespa from the 50s:

"Why do you display such junk at a museum? That moped is really old and shitty!"

I answer him that the display is about the 1950s and that the moped is from that era.

"It's an original? For real?"

I answer him yes.

"Coooooooool! I'll tell everyone I've seen the Real Thing!"

Don't you have to love kids?

Heh - that's hilarious. It's so often the same for adults too, though, don't you find? It's all how you frame it. :)
