Munch's Scream stolen. Again "Edvard Munch's two most famous paintings, The Scream and his erotically-charged Madonna, have been nabbed from a Norwegian art gallery at gunpoint. Not much in the way of a security system stood in the way of the robbers, although a brave female security guard did her best to stop the raid by lying on the floor when asked to. The robbers bagged the paintings, drove off, and police arrived 15 minutes later, by which point the thieves were miles away, toasting their haul with the finest Norwegian champagne." Just about my favorite painting.
