Sleazy museum to clear up ‘suggested’ fee confusion

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will alter its cashier signs to make it clearer to patrons that $25 is only the “suggested” price.

The change is part of a deal settling one of two lawsuits which accused the Met of subtly coercing art lovers to pay the $25 with tiny signs that describe the fee as “recommended.”

One group of plaintiffs is willing to settle with the sleazy Metropolitan Museum of Art, while the other plaintiffs want to tighten the thumbscrews some more.

The Bitemaster, who’s blogged about this before, thinks waterboarding might be called for.
