Art Joke: The Paris Thief with No Monet
Sure its bad, but when you tell it to someone else today, and they groan, you will at least sound like an an intelligent artsy person. However, you must tell the joke with a suitably impeccable faux French accent.
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 asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied,
"Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet
To buy Degas
To make the Van Gogh."
