I love the heading.. "Pink Panther lopes off.." but the journo instinct in me, and the humorous side of me wants to write "Masterminds Oceans' struck again!"
Blame it on the fact that I just saw the trilogy one after the other last week, not to mention Bourne trilogy a couple weeks ago..and the fact that I'm now listening and hooked to the Ocean's trilogy soundtrack!
But then. I'm not the only one who thinks of the Ocean's. Read the remarks written by the readers.. the oldest first. And besides Clouseau.. Ocean's also gets talked about!
Brilliant theft. But stupid idea. Unless the art work is being kept by a collector, who cannot even sell it..maybe not for generations to come.. what's the use? Display it in a cave? Dump it in the trash? Garage sale? Returned back with thanks as they got their publicity?
To tell you the truth, i don't mind Picasso being stolen.. that was is a pretty sad piece. Le Pigeon aux petit pois
But the Mattise?? Pastorale, Nympe et Faune
. And L'Olivier pres de l'Estaque
by Georges Braque. Sacrilege!
The saddest news.. it won't be the 13 Ocean's men.. it will be a few skinny French men with a few international connections with a few bald, old, fat men..maybe Italian or American. or who knows..British..or German..
the latest.. a couple hours later.. www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1279900/Paris-art-heist-Picasso--Matisse-stolen-lone-robber-Museum-Modern-Art.html
a lone burly man????
