T-Rex goes for gold
Twitter lets athletes hear from Justin Bieber. It gets ride of some competitors even before their events for tweeting their inner racist. It sets off revolutionary uprisings among burned ticket buyers.
It gives the rarified world of museum curators a way to talk about Donald Duck not wearing pants.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art started it by launching the hashtag #MuseumOlympics and inviting museums around the world to showcase their collections and compete for Twitter gold.
"Famous Seven from #Canada who painted the beauty of the Canadian landscape #MuseumOlympics," offered a post from Wendy.
Art scholars debated the role of the nude in sculpture vs. the original Greek Olympians, sculpted nude male bodies.
"Donald Duck usually doesn't have pants on!" tweeted the Walt Disney Museum helpfully.
Harvard Art Museums offered a 1960s black and white photograph of boys diving. The Philadelphia Museum of Art posted a 1997 Chinese photograph of day labourers posing in a shallow pond in Beijing. The Andy Warhol Museum sent in Warhol's "Muhammad Ali, 1977."
The Royal Ontario Museum thought maybe its T-Rex could be a contender for Olympic archery ... if his arms weren't so short.
