Well go stick a pin in art history Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith. The two authors are claiming Vincent Van Gogh did not kill himself, I repeat, did not kill himself but rather was shot dead by two local kids with a malfunctioning pistol. The great painter, who was a tad loopy, was thought to have shot himself in the chest before walking a mile to get help while living in the village of Auvers-sur-Oise in France . But the new claim suggests he was accidentally shot. Hmm, and that would make him still dead.

OK, here’s the thing Cairo Museum, if you are going to hang a goddam $50 million Van Gogh on the wall, make sure you point at least one friggin security camera (that works) at it. The painting Poppy Flowers and Vase And Flowers is still missing despite earlier reports officials had arrested an Italian couple at the airport and retrieved the painting. Come on,it can’t be hard, only 10 friggin people had visited the museum the day the Gogh vanished. Unfortunately none of the alarms in the museum were on and only 7 of the 43 security cameras were working.Whoopsie!
Psst Inside job, inside job!
Psst It isn’t the first time the paintings gone walkabout, in 1978 it was stolen and then later found in Kuwait.
