A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.
After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van.
However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas.
When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, "Monsieur, zat is the reason I stole ze paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."
...and you thought I didn't have De Gaulle to post this.
Well, I figure I have nothing Toulouse.
