If you were like millions of other Americans, then you probably watched the Oscars. The Curator and Mrs. Mustard were among those watching the Academy Awards. In fact, we loved Best Picture winner The King’s Speech — the story of how King George VI (Colin Firth) overcame his speech impediment with the help of an unorthodox teacher (Geoffrey Rush). And of course, that made us think of mustard!
Part of the collection here at the National Mustard Museum is this rare mustard pot, made to commemorate the visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to Canada in 1939.
With that kind of golden mustardization here at the Mustard Museum, how could “The King’s Speech” not win? Seems so obvious now.
