It isn’t April 1, so we’re assuming the press release from the Newseum about a planned “Anchorman” exhibit opening in November is genuine. November 14, the museum joins forces with Paramount Pictures to present “Anchorman: The Exhibit,” which will coincide with the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues in December. Among the items on display: Ron Burgundy’s jazz flute, a re-creation of the KVWN-TV anchor desk, and a news set where visitors can pretend to be Brick Tamlin.

Items we hope are included, but unconfirmed for now:

  • Sex Panther perfume.
  • Many leather-bound books.
  • A trident.
  • Milk.
  • Lamp.
  • Bears.
  • A glass case of emotion (although if you think about it, that’s basically what the Newseum is, only on a much larger scale).

We look forward to updating this when we learn more, but for now, you stay classy, Pennsylvania Avenue.
