Outrageous Salvador Dali Requests

Salvador Dali was a regular guest at the Meurice Hotel in Paris, always staying, with his two pet ocelots, in rooms 106 and 107, which face the Tuileries Garden. The rooms have high ceilings, parquet floors and 18th-century, Louis XVI-style furnishings. Dali once asked the hotel’s concierge staff to bring an entire herd of sheep to his rooms, so he could shoot blank bullets at them; on another occasion, he asked the concierges to catch flies for him in the Tuileries, paying them five francs for each bug caught.
