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.'
See if you have De Gaulle to send this post on to someone else....
I posted it because I figured I had nothing Toulouse!
