it's enough to make you scream...

Edvard Munch paintings get stolen... as if they were easy Los Lonely Loser Loverboys posters - easy to roll up and hide up the length of your spine, if you're a lanky tart... no matter what your age really is... *lol*

Munch paintings should be far more well-protected than THAT... they shouldn't be vulgarily shoplifted practically! What were they doing in a hotel restaurant anyway...?!? Doesn't Munch have rabid fans (Munchies?) who'd just DEMAND that their dear Edvard's work be displayed in a more proper place for it - like an art museum?!? Munch is not any lesser than Dali or Picasso... why is he relegated to hotel restaurants?!? The result is - TWICE Munch paintings - very famous paintings too - have been stolen (okay - the first time, during which the most famous piece of all, "the Scream", was taken in BROAD DAYLIGHT - was indeed in an Oslo museum...).
I guess the problem is, then, with Norwegian thinking... and their concept of what measures of security the works of their most famous painter warrant... hmm?

Artworks by Edvard Munch Stolen in Norway Mar 7, 4:41 AM (ET)

OSLO, Norway (AP) - Three art works by Edvard Munch were stolen from a hotel in southern Norway, the second theft of paintings by the renowned Norwegian artist in less than seven months, police said Monday.

The pieces were taken from the Refnes Hotel near the city of Moss, about 30 miles south of Oslo, late Sunday, said Paul Horne of the Oestfold district police. No information was immediately available on their value.

"It was last night at 23:08 that we got a report of the theft," Horne said on the state radio network NRK. He said police searched the area during the night without success.

"They are the real thing," Horne told the NTB news agency.

Horne described the works as paintings, while the hotel owner told NRK that two of the stolen art works were lithographic prints and one was a watercolor from the hotel's collection of seven Munch works.

They were taken from the hotel restaurant after closing hours.

Hotel owner Vidar Salbuvik told NRK that the two lithographs were portraits, including one of the artist himself, and that the third was a watercolor titled the "The Blue Dress" from 1915.

It was the second theft of Munch paintings in Norway in less than seven months.

The masterpieces "The Scream" and "Madonna" were stolen in a brazen daylight raid from an Oslo museum on Aug. 22 by three masked robbers, and have yet to be recovered.

In 1994, another version of "The Scream" was stolen from the National Gallery in Oslo and was recovered a few months later in a sting operation.

Munch, a Norwegian, developed an emotionally charged painting style that was of great importance in the birth of the 20th century Expressionist movement. He died in 1944 at the age of 80.
Oops... I dared call Los Lonely Boys groupies "lanky tarts" - or infer that they are - today... on Women's Day...!!!

What am I doing...?!?
I am out of control!
Somebody stop me...!!! *LOL*
... NOT!

As if anybody could stop me - short of Father Time, Lady Fate and ALL-MIGHTY GOD... I don't think so!
