Who’s in the Egg?

by Ann Bartkowski

In preparation for the annual awards dinner, a giant space egg has descended upon the skylight of the museum. Where did it come from? Where is it going? And what new species will hatch from it?

Current Theories:

1) This egg represents the birth of science knowledge. Lady Gaga will emerge forth from it when we are least expecting it during dinner.

2) It is a giant bouncy ball which will be used as a method of facilitation our guests’ exodus at the end of the night–a la Indiana Jones and the boulder.

3) There is an enormous ping pong paddle under the rotunda and that the whole “awards dinner” is just a cover for the Guinness Book of World Records Largest Ping Pong Tournament ever played.

If none of these theories seem plausible, please feel free to submit your own.
