Entry from September 13, 2021
“What’s a Met Gala?"/"A type of apple found in New York. Also why it’s called the Big Apple.”

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute has held an annual fundraiser since 1948, called the Costume Institute Gala, but usually known as the “Met Gala” or “Met Ball.” The term “Met Gala” has nothing to do with Gala apples, but there are jokes.

“What is a met gala? Do they have Gala apples there bc I’m in” was posted on Twitter by Shey on May 2, 2016. “Here’s the thing about the Met Gala: I don’t know what it is. It’s a… party… for… gala apples?” was posted on Twitter by Andrew Han on May 2, 2017. “I want to be famous enough to go to the Met Gala one day and carry around a Gala Apple, introducing it to everyone. Because then they would have MET GALA” was posted on Twitter by Corndair on May 7, 2018. “The only Met Gala I care about is the home run gala apple that pops up when the Mets hit a home run” was posted on Twitter by john haskell on May 7, 2018. 

“Whats a met gala” was asked on Twitter by Hbomberguy on September 14, 2021. “A type of apple found in new york. Also why its called the big apple” was the Twitter response from Dib.

The Met Gala has been nicknamed the “Oscars of the East Coast” and the “Party of the Year.” Other Met Gala descriptions include “The Met Gala is just Final Fantasy cosplay for rich people,” “Met Gala is the ugly sweater contest for the upper class,” “The Met Gala is Burning Man for people named in the Panama Papers,” “Met Gala is just Burning Man for rich(er) people” “The Met Gala is like a bougie Halloween party,” “The Met Gala is just boujee Halloween,” “The Met Gala is Halloween for celebrities” and “The Met Gala is just Halloween for rich people.”


Wikipedia: Met Gala
The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.

Wikipedia: Gala (apple)
Gala is a clonally propagated apple cultivar with a mild and sweet flavour. In 2018, it surpassed Red Delicious as the apple cultivar with the highest production in the United States, according to the US Apple Association. It was the first time in over 50 years that any cultivar was produced more than Red Delicious.
