Guilty by association.

pablo picasso and the mona lisa
I know we all have friends that have done odd or strange things. Jail time? Hmm not that I know of…well, okay maybe but today I found out that at some point when the Mona Lisa went missing from the Louvre in 1911 they totally arrested Pablo Picasso, yes THE Pablo Picasso because his friend Géry Piéret, accused him of doing it. His “friend” turns out was a renown arts and antiques thief, so the police automatically suspected him and Pablo because Pablo had purchased old Iberian head statues from him at some point. Anyhow, Turns out it wasn’t either of them but an employee of the museum. I’m guessing they weren’t a friend afterward, that’s just a guess…
