Usually I’ll Put My Shirt Back On at the First “Beat It With a Stick Before It Gets AWAY!!!

But, then again, I’m not worth what these girls are, AND ~ at least so far ~ I still have health insurance for the bruises the angry crowd inflicts if I’m a little slow.

Gauguin painting to be checked for damage

WASHINGTON, April 4 (UPI) — A woman beat Gauguin’s “Two Tahitian Women” with her fists at the National Gallery in Washington, calling it “evil,” museum officials said.

The painting was to be checked for damage Monday.

In Friday’s incident, the woman pulled the painting from the wall and struck it repeatedly with her fists, shouting, “This is evil,” The Washington Post reported.

“She was really pounding it with her fists,” said Pamela Degotardi of New York, who witnessed the attack. “It was like this weird surreal scene that one doesn’t expect at the National Gallery.”

People are strange.

    They don’t provide the suspect’s name, so I am going to presume that she is a muslim.

    She might have been Baptist.

    No bet, Major Dad.

    I’m with Sister – you never know – though I wouldn’t suggest Baptist first in the Christian corner. Could be the name/affiliation wasn’t released (though I’m with Major Dad if it was).

  7. Kathy Kinsley says:

    oops – and if you were being sarcastic, THS, don’t. I’ve seen things just that weird from SEVERAL religions (including Buddhists).

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    Maybe she owns WonderBra stock.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    Turns out she’s just whacked; not a Presbyterian after all.

  10. Hell, guys, just be thankful she didn’t visit this ‘Art Gallery’! she’d be jumpin off the ceiling.
