Now, finally, the folks at Archie McPhee have opened the world's first Rubber Chicken Museum at their retail store in Seattle's Wallingford district! The grand opening ceremony for this fowl museum began on Friday at 3 PM, with much fanfare, clucking, and squawking.

The museum's curator, the High Priestess of the Rubber Chicken Shana Iverson, used giant novelty scissors for the ribbon cutting, which was broadcast on Facebook Live.

Congratulations to Shana and everyone involved with creating this glorious madness. I look forward to my personal curator's tour of the museum on my next visit.

Need a rubber chicken or three? They've got you covered.
