Is this the main sport played in Norway or something?! Its happened before too! All those bored norwegians must decide to nick a painting to brighten their days.

On the plus side, only about 6 or 7 people live in Norway, so I'm sure it wont take to long to find the thieves! :lol:

And it is summer up there so they are having 20+ hour daylight atm. You hope they wore masks or something 'cause they wouldn't be getting away under the cover of darkness! :ph34r:

Gotta love the scandanavians!

Funny how this wasn't reported in the news much ... sort of thought Munch's The Scream was one of the the most important pieces of art in history.

I know. It is also amazing that another version of the same painting was stolen in 1994, and the Museum still hadn't updated their security 10 years later. You would think they might put in an alarm, or secure it to the wall a bit more securely than just thin wire. :rolleyes: And Mat, it gives new meaning to the term "robbed in broad daylight" when they are only getting about 3 hours of darkness at the moment! LMAO
