Steal me once, shame on you; steal me twice, shame on me.

This Van Gogh painting should be ashamed of itself.

And... they can't even produce a clear photo of the painting? Double shame.

That absolutely does not look like a Van Gogh, early or late period.

Perhaps he was painting in the style of Monet.

Let's talk about van Gogh, shall we--

Mohammed Bouyeri murdered Van Gogh in the early morning of 2 November 2004, in Amsterdam, in front of the Amsterdam East borough office on the corner of the Linnaeusstraat and Tweede Oosterparkstraat, while he was cycling to work. Bouyeri shot van Gogh eight times with an HS 2000 handgun, and Van Gogh died on the spot. Bouyeri then attempted to decapitate him with one knife, and stabbed him in the chest with another. The two knives were left implanted in his torso, one attaching a five-page note to his body. The note threatened Western countries, Jews and Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The note also contained references to the ideologies of the Egyptian organization Takfir wal-Hijra.

Who are you calling a bigot? Me, or Van Gogh?

Interesting that the painting is nowhere to be found. Somehow I have a feeling concepts like the Rules of Evidence aren't going to count for much here.

Grow a bigger head, or buy some smaller sun glasses.
