Recently a guy in Paris nearly got away with stealing
several paintings from the Louvre. However, after
planning the crime, breaking in, evading security,
getting out and escaping with the goods, he was captured
only two blocks away when his Econoline van ran out of gas.
When asked how he could mastermind such a crime
and then make such an obvious error, he replied:
"I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."
