He took the tube
To steal a smile.
But did not get
To make a pile.

Is the tube used to contain something? Does it have a lid? Is it a hollow cylinder?

Is a "smile" a physical smile? A photograph? Painting? Other work of art?

Mona Lisa relevant?

Reading down these posts my thoughts were as follows:

'Hmm interesting.....'
'I wonder if it could....'
'Actually i think it probably....'
'Yes I've got....'
'Darn beat me to it Balin.....'

I'm sure his next post will be the spoiler.

Somebody stole the Mona Lisa, but didn't get to make a pile of money from the sale because... he got caught?

Dicy,

NO but close enough for a spoiler.


S P O I L E R

A thief broke into the Louvre to steal the Mona Lisa. He took a tube into which he intended to put the rolled-up canvas. But the Mona Lisa is painted on a wooden board, so his plan failed.

I read a Two Minute Mystery where the main clue was that the Mona Lisa is painted on wood and so cannot be rolled up, so once I hit on the "smile" I had a pretty good idea of it.

Nice puzzle Admin.
