Edvard Munch's Scream stolen

I know this is very much OT, but it is so crazy that I thought to post it here. Today armed men stormed into Oslo's Munch museum, threatened staff at gunpoint and stole Edvard Munch's famous paintings The Scream and Madonna before the eyes of stunned museum-goers.

Every high-school kid probably knows the famout The Scream Expressionist painting. It is perhaps less known that there are four versions the same painting. The Munch Museum had two of them, a private collector owns the third and the fourth is on display at Oslo's National Gallery.

Crazy world we live in...

The thiefs were either art collectors or just plain stupid - how would ever sell such a famous piece of work??
