Artsy Wednesday: Mona Lisa Crazy

If you haven't already, read this Guardian article about a Russian woman, mad at France for denying her citizenship, hurling a mug at the Mona Lisa.

I can picture the scene so easily - and it is hilarious. But here's what I want to know:

  • Was she under the impression that the Mona Lisa was, actually, a French painting?
  • How is it that she didn't hit any tourists?
  • How funny is the Guardian for specifically mentioning that the mug thrown was produced in England?
  • Why isn't this getting more press? Doesn't everybody find it as entertaining as I do?
