Upper East Side Museum Fees Now In Line With Far West Side Blowjob Fees

New York art-lovers with too much class (or the lack of a corporate A&E card) to skip making the suggested donation are going to be a little lighter in the wallet: The Met is jacking its admission price up by five dollars, to a $20 total. Spokesman Harold Holzer justified the hike by saying, "Ever since 9/11, the museum has faced the ongoing challenge of a structural, operating deficit. This is a solution that helps us defray the cost of running essentially the largest museum of the country."

Holzer went on to explain that "those fake Duccios don't pay for themselves."
