I bet they’re all jealous of “Mona Lisa”?

The best shot I could get of the famous “Mona Lisa”. I love that her eyes follow you no matter where you are in the room. 

I’ve spent a week in Paris and have a lot to write about. I am still here and am sad to leave tomorrow. I will write about the delicious foods I ate and the things I did/saw, but first I want to write about “Mona Lisa”. I went to the largest museum in the world yesterday “Musée du Louvre” and met her. She has been one of the world’s most famous paintings for over 500 years. What is it about this piece of art that has made it so famous? I think it’s because it is surrounded by so much mystery. Is she the wife of a wealthy Florentine merchant? Is she Leonardo da Vinci’s mother? Is she Leonardo in drag? Is it because she’s been stolen and vandalized many times? Honestly I don’t know and don’t get it and instead of giving you the history and my thoughts on it I want to share a story of the many paintings around her and what they may be thinking.

Yup a tiny portrait has an entire wall to her self. I would be jealous too.

You see “Mona Lisa” hangs in a room with a lot of other paintings, but she has an entire wall in the middle of the room to her self.  One of the things I observed was the other paintings in the room don’t get much love and I think they notice. Everyone seems to flock to see “Mona Lisa” and I think the rest of them are jealous of her.

I took pictures of the paintings around “Mona Lisa” and I swear I think this is what they are thinking!

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

“God,

Why am I not the one on that wall? I am just as pretty as Lisa if not prettier. I am just as nice as Lisa if not nicer. Why is it that Lisa gets all the attention?

Love,

Gretchen”

“OMG NOOOO REGINA DON’T SHOW THEM…”

“But I must guys it’s the only way I will get attention.

Fuck Lisa I’m over her.”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

“Hi my name is Karen, I sit here with one breast out all day

and that bitch Lisa still gets all the attention.”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

“I bet the 3 of us can have an orgy with the two men watching us & that slut Lisa will still get all the attention.”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

“Ross grab my breast and tell me you love me more then they all love Lisa.”

“Yes Rachel I love you the most.”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

“NO JAIME YOU CAN NOT TAKE HER PLACE…

CALM THE FUCK DOWN OR I WILL HAVE TO CUT YOU. “

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

So yup that is what I think these paintings are thinking. I actually feel sorry for them. I stood there a bit in the room and watched everyone just come and go visiting “Mona Lisa” and only a few would look at the other paintings in the room. Oh & yes before you ask I thought of all these little quote while standing there looking at them. I would stare at the portrait study it a bit and then come up with what they are probably thinking and then snap a picture. I guess you can do stuff like this when you have to much time on your hands… or you are just a bit crazy like me. So what do you think these pictures are thinking? Am I right wouldn’t you be jealous of “Mona Lisa” too?

  3. Jesus Christ you’re retarded! The Mona Lisa is definitely anti-climatic…kinda like having sex for the first time. It’s definitely a disappointment. I hope you remember to turn your flash off, if not it’s on like Donkey Kong biotch.

    • OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COMMENT>>> CRACKED ME UP!!! Jajaja I should have written on the post that YES i did have my flash off…. & FYI… i looked EVERYWHERE for a SIGN THAT SAID NO PICTURES OR FLASH & DIDN’T FIND ONE. I think the rules have changed since last time you went…lol!!!

  4. Not a standard “here’s the Mona Lisa” post :-) and I love it! Very creative ;-)

    I remember people practically elbowing people out of the way to get to her. And then when you got to the front you had no more than seconds to have a look before you’re ushered on so the throngs behind you can have a peek.

  6. This post just cracked me up! Perfect entertainment for my morning walk to work.

    I’ve heard it is pretty anti-climatic. Now I’m sure I’ll be checking out the rest of the paintings in the room when I visit!

    • Glad I can entertain you on your way to work today Daryle. Hope you hade a great day & yes it is very anti-climatic. Oh & yes do check out the rest of the painting and see what they are thinking…lol!!!

  9. Absolutely great post!!

    First of all, very hilarious! I could definitely see those pictures thinking those things. I also didn’t know the Mona Lisa had its own wall so that definitely adds jealously points.

    Also, intentional or unintentional, I love the “Friends” reference with naming two characters Ross and Rachel.

    I look forward to future posts.

    • Thanks Bob so much. Yes her having her own wall makes everything just so much more dramatic…lol!!!

      As for Ross & Rachel you are the 1st to pick up on that “intentional” reference. There is one more reference in these quotes from somewhere else… but I wont give hints or clues. I hope someone finds it.

  16. Ok… I have to admit you need to be admitted to the mental hospital; I’m surprised nobody has taken the angle that you’re mocking Mona Lisa (but I don’t care, funny post anyway!).

    You know… I’ll probably avoid writing about Mona Lisa when I go to Paris heck I’m not sure I’ll go to the Louvre just to see her, I’d go to see the other stuff I’ve seen plenty of replica pics of Mona Lisa why do I need to go se the real thing?

    • Jaja yeah I don’t think anyone has taken this angle at all… it’s my weird mind Shannon… I know.

      Well I still think you should see her, but in the end it is up to you and well I must admit she is tiny and it is overrated.

Speak Your Mind
