Would Jonh Simon have ever thought that his name would someday be on an international chain of museums? Guggenheim/Hermitage Museum inside LasVegas's Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino, New York, Bilbao, Venice, and Berlin, plus the Gugg has alliances with the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg and the Center for Art and Media Technology in Karlsruhe, Germany. lets see, then there's this and this.
I think if they're going to make a chain of museums they oughtta have an advertising icon/mascot, like how HamburgerHelper has that weird 4 fingered hand, or Planters has the classy peanut with the monocle. I'm picturing a friendly cartoon version of the guy pictured above, but the turban on his head would be more Guggenheimy. Are you inspired to submit a proposal for the new Guggenheim mascot? I'll post em and forward them to the Guggs PR department. My email is under my complete profile...

How about this? Again, the hat could be modified, or the head on the beer, to look like the gugg. The hat could also be expanded to resemble a Gehry building.
I'm weeping with joy. It's perfect. I think the Gugg public relations officer will like it too. Good work agent Sloth.
PS. You're blog is so relaxing. It shall be added to the sidebar at once!
Sloth is most honored, O Corn-Pone, creamiest of corn. Many props to you and your excellent blog, which Sloth has admired from afar these many weeks.
