A Frenchman in Paris nearly got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre.
However, after planning the crime and getting in and out and past security, 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…..
“I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”
A coffee with Dave the other day, produced this little nugget!
Sharing is what life is all about.
An oldie but a goodie!
Like me! 😛 Right, Tilly?
Loved it before. Love it again.
I must have been sleeping first time round, or………. Younger than you, Nancy and Tilly!
quite new to me as well…
Glad I am not alone, Cathy.
The first time ever I saw it…and just how do you pronounce Degas in Ireland?
In Ireland? We pronounce it ‘də-ˈgä’ or ‘də-ˈgäs’. In the story above it is a French man doing the pronouncing.
