Two of the world’s most famous paintings, “The Scream” and “Madonna”, both by Edvard Munch, were recovered today, two years after being stolen from the Munch Museum. The thieves were convicted in May, but until today, the paintings had not been recovered. What makes this story really news worthy though, is the fact that just days ago, in an attempt to advertise for their new dark chocolate M&Ms, Masterfoods USA offered a reward of 2 million dark chocolate M&Ms for the return of “The Scream”, which their new ad campaign is based on. It appears that Masterfoods will honor their offer and give the finders their keepers of 40,000 chocolaty packages, provided the authenticity of the painting is proven of course. I just hope they provide a picture of the delivery so we can finally see what a bag (or a truck) full of 2 million M&Ms looks like.
