NEW YORK – Two fingers and a tooth removed from Galileo Galilei’s corpse and given up for lost have been found again and will soon be put on display, an Italian museum director said Friday.

“We looked everywhere for those fingers and that tooth,” said Giuseppe Garibaldi, curator of the International Museum of Celebrity Fingers, Toes and Teeth, in New York City.  “Now if only we can find Galileo’s toes, then our collection will again be complete,”  Garibaldi said.

Misplaced for years, Galileo’s fingers and tooth were found by a cleaning lady in a small paper bag within the museum exhibit displaying  Michelangelo’s fingers, toes and teeth.

“Once we realized Galileo’s fingers, toes and almost all of his teeth were missing, we snapped into action,” said  Frankie “Nine Fingers” Tartaglia, museum janitor and part time anthropologist. “We even looked through the fingers, toes and teeth of other famous people,  like Richard Nixon, Albert Einstein – even Milton Berle. This museum has some of the fingers, toes and/or teeth from everybody who was anybody.  So you can imagine our chagrin when Galileo’s toes, fingers and one of his teeth went missing,”  Tartaglia said.

“We will be more careful this time,” Garibaldi said.
