SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - What do you call a 3,000-year-old rhino?
No, it's not a joke; it's a contest.
The Asian Art Museum in San Francisco is inviting the public to submit nicknames for an ancient Chinese bronze vessel in the shape of a rhinoceros.
The 12-inch-high ritual vessel may once have held wine or food.
The museum says it's a masterpiece and should get the term of endearment it deserves.
People can submit one-word nicknames for the rhino by Jan. 1. Entry forms are on the museum's website.
Museum staff will choose three names, awarding prizes that include a museum gift card and a plush rhino.
The public will then vote for a final winner, which will be announced in February.
