If you are going to throw something at the Mona Lisa, a cup of English Breakfast tea is a good a thing as any. Hmm, some crazy Russian woman hurled her cuppa over the heads of tourists and managed a direct hit on the bullet proof glass housing the famous Da Vinci painting at the Louvre. The woman was later jumped by security guards and dragged away. A museum spokesman said ‘It is one of the most well guarded works of art in the world, and it would take more than a well-aimed tea-cup to damage it.’ Yeah, he’s right. But doctors are now assessing the strange Russian woman for Stendhal Syndrome,you know that weird condition that causes people to go into an utter state of confusion and/or commit violent acts when they are exposed to art (aka smart defence strategy). Geez, that painting has been through it’s fair share of drama, it’s been stolen, had acid and a hammer thrown at it and now tea! It’s her friggin smirk!
Psst Hmm, I hope it was Twinnings, they make the best brew! Gosh, I hope it was Nigella!!!!
