Art Theft in Paris!


Since many people know I'm a French teacher, they send me a lot of French-related news and humor. I've decided to post one of those news items to my blog today. Prepare yourself - this is pretty shocking!

A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.

After much careful planning, he craftily 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."

This is Rob again. Hope that wasn't too painful for those of you who aren't into puns. I received what I'm posting today by e-mail from several people. I think none of them thought I would have De Gaulle

to post this on my blog, but I figured after everything else I've posted, what have I got Toulouse?

Many here in the US are enjoying a nice break from global warming recently with absolutely frigid temps. It's supposed to get down into the teens here tonight! I know for some of you, that would be a nice spring day, but for those of us here in South Carolina, that is very cold!

For those of you who receive my blog posts by e-mail, any pictures that I include in blog posts should come through in the e-mail version. Some people have to click on something in their e-mail to make the images load. Sometimes that is found in a little bar at the very top of the e-mail - it all depends on the e-mail program you're using. In the last week or so, I have also inserted a couple of video clips into my blog posts - one of tractor square dancing and another of a man singing the song I mentioned in my last blog post. In order to view those, you must go to the blog. You can do that by clicking on the words "latest post to ivman's blague" or on the title of that blog post - both of those links are in the body of the e-mail message.

    Rob,

    I absolutely LOVED the art thief punnery! I started out as an art major at BJU and the play on words and pics tickled my humorous bone.

    Thanks,
    Karen
