Diplodocus for Sale — Sold

Remember that Diplodocus that was for sale?  It sold today for £400,000.

According to the BBC, “An undisclosed institution bought the skeleton, which auction officials said would be going on public display.”  Whether that’s display in a carefully curated science museum remains to be seen — the BBC quotes the auctioneer as saying, “Within the context of a shopping mall you can make a real ‘wow’ statement.”

Wow is right.
