The Met's shark

From a New York Times article on a shark in formaldehyde, on display for the next three years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

How does it look? Weird.

Will the shark attract a new audience to the Met? Maybe.

Is it worth the trip? Definitely.
Is the article worth reading? Kinda. But thinking about this sculpture makes me recall what someone in The World of Henry Orient asks: If this is music, what's that stuff Cole Porter writes?
Just When You Thought It Was Safe (New York Times)
