Eliciting Audible Groans

A thief was in Paris planning to steal some of the most famous paintings in the Louvre.

After careful, meticulous planning, he executed with precision timing. First he got past security, disarmed the complex security devices, lifted many most world-famous paintings from their perches, and made his way with his collectible cachet safely to his van, and made his way inconspicuously into the night.

However, only two blocks away, his van stalled- he had run out of petrol. A patrol car making it’s rounds pulled alongside, his cargo was recognized, and he was immediately taken into custody.

When asked why he would have gone to such great lengths and mastermind such a crime, and then make such an obvious, and rookie, error, he replied:

“Monsieur, but that is the reason I had to steal the paintings.

“I had no Monet.

“To buy Degas.

“To make the Van Gogh.

“Plus I figured I had nothing else Toulouse.”

The sergeant commented: “De Gaulle of this thief!”
