Actually By Jerry SeinfeldWe post this in honor of the Menil Collection museum’s security guards who acted so swiftly during the recent vandalism of Picasso’s Woman In A Red Armchair
Do security guards in the art museums really ever stop anybody from taking the paintings? I mean are they going up to the thieves, “Hey, hey, hey, where do you think you’re going with that? Hey, come over here, give me that Cézanne.” I mean look at the job that this man is hired to do. He’s getting five dollars an hour to protect millions of dollars of priceless art and with what? He’s got a light mocha brown uniform and a USA Today. This is all he’s got. I mean crooks must look at this guy and go, “Alright all we gotta do is get past the folding chair and the thermos of coffee and we can get the Rembrandt.”
