very very funny

This article made me laugh hysterically.

How does a thing like this happen? Too much leaning over? A shove from behind?
A high-heel malfunction? Drunkenness? Over-enthusiasm?

Perhaps the painting's skewed perspective caused a temporary loss of balance. I suppose it could happen. And then it's not the fault of the viewer at all, right?

I feel such sympathy for the person who caused all this hoop-lah. Because for the rest of his/her life, every trip to a museum, china shop, or playing card tower-building exposition will be fraught with fear that something like this would happen again.

WHY is this so very funny to me?

I think it is only very funny to you because you make the people around you who do silly things like rip paintings and break pfaltzcraft in thrift stores panicky. =)

I just read this article 2 minutes ago and thought "I have to send this to Nancy, it is hysterical"!

The artwork is usually ginormous, so why does one stand so close to it? Too risky.... By the way, Mr. Bean is the funniest!
