'Ladies, gentlemen, welcome to the tour our special collection. Please do not feed, and keep your fingers with you, you would not be the first to lose a piece of finger. Please follow me!’
Obedient I shudder with the company behind the guide and, after all these warnings, hold my fingers with me.
Behind bars and thick glass plates we get bored, irritated or slightly aggressively stared at. I'm not too faint, so I'm just staring back. It's a special collection brought together here.
'This, ladies and gentlemen, 'juers the guide, 'is a very rare specimen: a completely honest politician.'It is a good reason to dwell on.
“And that?I point to a reading child behind the next glass.’
'Even rarer, 'says the guide, 'one of the last bookworms.’
