Museum of Celebrity Leftovers

Silly or genius? Or maybe both? Michael and Francesca Bennett saved bits of food left by celebrities that visited their cafe in Kingsand, England:

The impetus for the museum came to the Bennetts after musician Pete Doherty dined at the café and left behind panini crumbs. Around the same time, fashion photographer David Bailey failed to polish off his sandwich crust after lunch at the Boatstore, and the idea was born.

The pieces are now displayed under glass domes in shelves on a wall of the café. Among others, luminaries such as Prince Charles and the actress Mia Wasikowsa have both left behind food remnants, which are now artifacts in the museum. There are no preservatives used on the leftovers, but apparently that hasn’t caused mold — some items are simply shriveled up.
