Joke: Theft at Knysna Art Gallery

Knysna Art GalleryA man nearly got away with stealing a number of paintings from the Knysna Art Gallery.

However, after planning the robbery and getting in and out of its location at the Old Gaol, he was captured only one block away when his van ran out of petrol right in front of the Knysna Police Station.

When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such a silly mistake, the thief replied, “I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh.”
