Anchorman: The Exhibit, by the Numbers

None 5 Photos Anchorman: The Exhibit
The Smithsonian’s got Seinfeld’s puffy shirt and Farrah Fawcett’s swimsuit. And it’s great, really. But it’s got nothing on the mélange of jazz flutes, mustache combs and glass cases of emotion that is Anchorman: The Exhibit, opening tomorrow at the Newseum. Here’s a quick statistical survey.

60: Objects in the collection, most on loan from Paramount.

16: Famous movie quotes, presented meme-style along one of the museum’s catwalks.

3: Rings worn by Ferrell on display (fun fact: two of them are US Army rings).

2: Sets of orthodontic headgear (one for Ron, one for Baxter).

1: Miniature versions of the script, on loan from Judd Apatow.

5: Approximate width, in inches, of the lapels on Ron’s famous burgundy suit.

6: Original video clips filmed by Ferrell for the exhibit’s “Ask Ron Burgundy” feature.

1: Clips in which he admits to incorrectly reporting that the US won in Vietnam.

3: Stools behind the News 4 desk, where you can pose for a photo.

90: Seconds it will take you to post said photo to Facebook (sample caption: “I love desk”).

33: Days until the Anchorman 2 room of the exhibit opens, in conjunction with the new film’s release.

4: Other fake newscasters featured in the exhibit, including Murphy Brown and Kent Brockman.

14: Items for sale in the museum’s dedicated Anchorman gift shop, including “scotchy scotch” glasses and a beer glass that claims to hold five beers.

Sixty percent of the time, it works every time.
