My All-Time Favorite Art Joke

A burglar broke into the Louvre one night and absconded with a large number of paintings.  He’d planned his way through the museum quite thoroughly and managed not to trigger any of the alarms.  However, he was arrested shortly after making his escape when his van ran out of gas two blocks away from the museum.

On the way to his trial, a reporter asked the burglar, “How could you plan the perfect crime, and then make such an obvious mistake?”

The burglar replied, “It was not a mistake–it was the whole reason why I stole the paintings in the first place!  I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”

I know, I know.

Got any better clean art jokes for me?
