Nelson Muntz Moment

Several high-end paintings and a 2010 red Porsche Carrera 4S are among $10 million worth of luxury goods missing from a home in Santa Monica that was burglarized last week while the resident was on a trip, authorities said Wednesday. 
Police are investigating the theft, which included paintings by such artists as California Impressionist painter Guy Rose and landscape artist Hanson Duvall Puthuff. Also stolen were five luxury watches, wine and cash. 
The burglary occurred at a home in the 500 block of 12th Street between 3 p.m. Sept. 12 and 8 p.m. Friday, according to a Santa Monica police statement.
We were in S.M. on Monday, dammit. This week, not last. Here is a picture of the crane that currently dominates the downtown S.M. skyline.
You see a red Porsche in here, officer?

So you're saying that the 500 block of 12th Street is a faux British pub? Or that no, offisher, the red Porsche you're driving is *not* the one that was stolen? Curious penguins are... curious!

I could see you driving around in a red Porsche, silk scarf flying jauntily in the breeze.

Time to do the stealation, old chum.

There's no red Porsche in the bunker here. Go ahead, look around. We had a picture of Santa Monica, so ...

We wish, but (Obviously an inside job.) we don't know any one w/ anything worth stealing, or who deserves being burglarized.

Not to worry, just visiting.

Is it really stealing if it's already stolen?

Counsel mumbled something about "receiving stolen property" before she "went into a tunnel."
