Before “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Before “Rocket Man,” There Was… This Guy!

I am working in a museum that currently features an exhibit of a deceased rock star who was known for his elaborate costumes. My station is by a photo op which includes some costume pieces similar to ones in the exhibit that people can wear for pictures. I’ve just offered them to a couple. The woman takes one piece happily, but the man gives me a skeptical look and says:

Man: “Do you have any clothes for men?”

Me: *Pause* “[Rock Star] was a man. These are things he wore. They are men’s clothes.”

He stood there with his mouth open for a moment. Then he put on a sequined jacket and took a picture.
