Ever hear about the time Picasso and Guillaume Apollinaire were taken in by the police under suspicion of stealing the Mona Lisa?

"said he spirited Mona Lisa from the Louvre,
but the writer of Alcools was a spirits lover,
lived in the zone of pure desire,
the great French language versifier!
Guuuuuuy Appollinaire!"

Les sans Culottes? They look like the merry pranksters hopped up on blue collar clothing.

yeah, heard of this, did not know apollinaire weeped though..."the poet assassinated indeed.

the theft of the 'Duchess of Devonshire' made more of a splash.
