Yes, absolutely ridiculous.

To be honest I found it quite funny. I mean obviously it’s terrible but I find the whole thing quite bizarre. The obsession to collect strange animals from around the world meets the obsession to tie flies using obscure materials.

It makes me wonder if there are fly tiers in the natural history museum. :)
