It is customary among Americnans when asking someone for an opinion or thoughts to say "a penny for your thoughts." But, if the truth be known, the expression should be "a pansy for you thoughts." Shakespeare knew what he was writing, when he used pansy. It's a joke! Get it? A take off on the French word "pensée" or thought.
Your Museum needs your ideas and thoughts about our priorities. A pansy for your thoughts!
