Tips for impressionable Paris art “dealers”



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 he was asked how he could mastermind
such a crime, and then make such an obviously stupid error
in judgment, he replied...

“Monsieur, the reason I stole the paintings from the Louvre
Paris Art Thief Caught

is because I had no Monet


to buy Degas


to make the Van Gogh.”


Now, see if you have De Gaulle


to send this on to someone else...
I sent it to you because I figured I had nothing Toulouse.
