Screams for assistance went unheeded

Edvard Munch’s painting “The Scream” as well as “Madonna” were stolen Sunday from a museum in Oslo, Norway by armed gunmen. Oh nooooooooooooooooooo

The weird bit is that this is the second time the painting has been stolen from the same museum.  Perhaps they should invest in an alarm system of sometype.

    I remember the first time it was stolen.  It doesn’t matter much though.  Munch made about 4 copies of it, so there’ll always be a backup.

    There’s several copies of Rodin’s, “The Thinker” too.  So we’ve also got that covered.

    Sooooooo what you’re saying is that all this great art is about as valuable as my C.H.I.P.s mpegs?

    Yep.  And the Sistine Chapel?  The Vatican’s got half a dozen of ‘em in a storage unit in Florence.
