    We like this joke from the National Gallery of Canada. :) NGC said: "Inspired by this Tumblr, we would like to announce that we will now begin the lengthy process of making all of our artworks gluten-free. This will entail reworking many Old Master works, removing baguettes from still-lifes and wheat from landscapes. We understand this might be controversial, however we want to ensure that our collection is accessible to all visitors, including those with allergies or intolerances. It's going to take a while, so please bear with us. We hope to be a 100% gluten-free institution in one year's time."
