Scream Too

by | 24th, August 2004

‘THE theft of Edvard Munch’s masterpiece The Scream from a Norwegian museum would ordinarily be something of a tragedy for the art world.

‘It’s Vanessa. And she’s naked…’

The painting was uninsured because it is literally priceless and there must be worries that it will never be seen in public again.

But fear not – the Sun, as ever, is on the case.

It has invited its readers to pick up their palettes and create a replacement for the iconic painting.

The paper will print the best ones and the very best one can be hung in Oslo’s Munch Museum where the original was once on display.

If budding painters are in need of inspiration, the Sun suggests they put themselves in Wayne Rooney’s shoes as he saw the front page of yesterday’s Sun.

One imagines that, far from screaming, the England and Everton striker would have been quite phlegmatic as he read the story of his various visits to a Liverpool brothel.

After all, the story had been in the Sunday Mirror the day before…’
