If anyone knows who broke into my house and stole the Picasso I had on the wall, I'd like answers.

Okay, now that I got your attention...

The real story is this.

Two armed robbers got a Rene Magritte from a small museum in Brussels. I'm sure more of you know Renee Zellwegger but not Magritte. He's a Belgian surrealist, who did the 1948 "Olympia" oil painting, that was a nude portrait of his wife, Georgette (I'm guessing she would've flipped out if he tried to bring another nude into the house. Artists are always trying to pull that move).

The painting is worth $1.1 million, and hung at his former house, which was turned into a museum. Entry was by appointment only.

Not sure if the robbers just barged in or had an appointment.
