Leicester Museum of Dust

Visitors and Tourists in Leicester were sad at the temporary closure of its world famous Dust Museum for Stock-taking.

Mable (I am 84, you know) Smith was shocked and saddened. "I came all the way from The Isle of Sky for this. It promised all types of dust based fun for all the family. Can you imagine how disappointed my grand children were. I don't know how they will ever get over the shock of all of this".

Chris, 13 and his Asbo of Chav's at the supermarket car park were not impressed either. 'It's just dust man, but it is a cool place to hang out in. They open late on a Thursday, so if it's raining it's a good place to go'

A spokesman, who works for the Museum's group said: 'It is just for two weeks. I don't see what all of the fuss is about. We only have two visitors a week anyway, but we have to stock take, and hoover up, and it is very delicate work. We have experts in dust maintenance from all over the world coming, so we had no other choice but to shut for a while'.

Leed's Museum of Pencil Sharpenings is still open, but will close in three weeks due to wood-worm.
