Icelandic town demands vulva museum

Stuff wild animals, we want Pussy Riot

The good burghers of the Icelandic town of Mosfellsbær are unimpressed with local council plans to build a wild animal museum, and instead favour opening a vulva attraction.

The campaigning Residents' Movement reckons a vulvular lipsmacker is a better way celebrating Mosfellsbær's "25th anniversary"* than the council's proposal.

It doubts wild beasts will prove much of a tourist draw, even though the town is strategically located some 12km east of Reykjavík. A vulva museum, on the other hand, would have "more to offer", and "symbolically contribute to gender equality".

Indeed, a good spread of vulvae could nicely complement the popular Icelandic Phallological Museum, which last year completed its penis collection with the delivery of a human todger.

The initial idea is to display vulvas** from indigenous Icelandic animals, "with added contributions included as the years progress". If the scheme comes to fruition, the Residents' Movement said it'd be fun to have Pussy Riot play at the opening. ®
