The Museum of English Rural Life, located in Reading, England has the only good Twitter account and is likely the best museum in the world (I say “likely” because I have never been, but highly suspect it to be true). If you’re outside the UK, the museum is probably on your radar due to a famous and perfect tweet featuring and black and white photo of a very healthy Exmoor Horn aged ram that read “look at this absolute unit.” And look the world did. Thanks to the museum’s absolutely charming holiday gift shop, those of us who fell in love with the unit can look every day as we transform our sad, stuffy quarantine homes into works of pastoral poetry via the museum’s other, almost relentlessly delightful gift shop offerings.

I am now saying, “look at this absolute unit” about my dog. She’s not impressed.

Also, I need that mug.
