The 'Scream' Was Stolen
In 1994, thieves barged into a museum in Oslo and stole a painting. Yesterday, they did it again! This time, two thieves walked into the museum, yelled in Norwegian (kinda funny) for everyone to lay down, and used wire cutters to free the The Scream and Madonna from the walls. Then they took off in a black Audi station wagon. Nobody was hurt. Nice. Now what? They'll have to ask a ransom for the paintings to be returned, or sell them to a lunatic "Dr. Evil" type. I'm sure this is not appreciated by the local authorities or people in the fine art industry but still, art heists are cool.
