Weekend Joke: Art and the Thief

Thanks to Seth for this one!
A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.

After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van.

However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas.

When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied,

"Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet

To buy Degas

To make the Van Gogh."


  1. Oh, how I love a good pun, or three. :)

  2. That is so bad, it's funny. Not exactly the best weekend joke you ever posted. ;)

  3. Thanks again Julie. I'm sending this to my BFA art student (painting) at Indiana University. God bless you and your blog!
