"Help, I'm a a rock": Amelia Earhart

Inspector Richard Nicholls from the Thames Valley Police is on the case. He said the exhibitors had been caught with their pants down, allowing a $1.25 million dollar, solid gold toilet to be stolen.

"Leaving it unguarded they presented the miscreants with a golden opportunity," he said.

Prior to the theft, visitors to the Cattelan exhibition could book a three-minute appointment to use the toilet. This had proved popular when the toilet was on display at the Guggenheim.

The thieves, of course, missed the whole point of the artwork:

The artist intended the golden toilet to be a pointed satire about excessive wealth. Cattelan has previously said: “Whatever you eat, a $200 lunch or a $2 hot dog, the results are the same, toilet-wise.”

"If these cretins had stolen the Mona Lisa, they'd probably use it as a dart board", said Inspector Nicholls.
