And another thin’ in case the other one did not make you Gogh “ARGHHH!”

An art thief pulls off an incredible heist at the Louvre. He loads a bunch of priceless paintings in the back of his van and drives off.

He is about to make the perfect getaway when his van suddenly stops. The authorities nab him, and one of them asks “what happened to the van?”

The thief replies:

“I did not have the Monet

to buy Degas

to make the Van Gogh”

    Lol I had to work out that the puns use the American pronunciation of van Gogh before they made sense. Some of his descendants live here; one of them painted things that are still on our postage stamps many years after. And her niece is my friend and neighbour.

    First, I love the photo of the tree. And having a very own personal Mexican of my own, I loved the Amee Gogh and Grin Gogh. I love that the mood throughout the blogosphere has been lighter. We must enjoy it while it lasts 🙂

    Thank you for making me laugh, I appreciated it 🙂

    I’d largely given up hope for today’s JOTD, motivation and energy flagging, when I stumbled onto this gem. Thanks to the author! I’m glad I started going down my top commenter list to see what such nice and tasteful (!) folks were up to. Truly, what goes around comes around…

    Van Meow had a miserable life because he never got over the fact that another lesser Dutch painter called Van Mouse kept making fake painting of his works and made a lot of money by selling them to wealthy collectors.
