The Museum of Laziness has been open for a week in Bogota, Colombia. Among its exhibits is a couch set before a TV, hammocks and various beds. Its curator says the city-sponsored museum is aimed at exploring the idea that "laziness is the enemy of work." Many museum-goers have embraced the idea of the couch potato and taken a snooze on the exhibits.
