DeVinci Code Survey: Do you think it's Mona Lisa's condescending little smirk that causes people to attack her?

My boss has that same smirk and I want to slug him sometimes.

    "Ironic" doesn't even BEGIN to describe this sorry episode, Tim!

    That I, 'The Rt Hon' Lady Leftfoot; Professor of Fine Art & Lovely Priceless Things', should be bundled off in handcuffs by six burly gendarmes - accused of maliciously hurling a gobful of scalding hot tea into the face of The Mona Lisa, no less! - well, it simply defies all reason. The truth is that, far from wishing to deface this great work of art, I was actually studying it with a view to perfecting her enigmatic expression for myself. However, as I stood there, sipping my complimentary cup of English tea and practising that famous "Giaconda smile", a passing Frenchman spotted my facial gymnastics and assumed I was attempting to attract his attention - tantalising his gaelic passions with a 'come hither' smirk. Well, duly fuelled with desire as any lustful Frenchy would be, the saucy rogue then doubled back on himself and snuck up behind me - launching an unexpected assault to the rear which caused me to shriek out in surprise and blindly hurtle my English tea into the air.

    And the rest, as they say, constituted this morning's headlines - scurrilously distorted by 'les nooz-peppas Francaise' into to a rendition of events I do not recognise and shall refute most adamantly at my upcoming trial.

    Now you know the facts, I trust you will join my campaign;

    "Free La Mona Lefta!"

    Merci.

    In actuality it has been discovered that it is a trick of the eye. The blurred sfumato style that DaVinci used on this painting creates an effect on your visual system, where you will now be able to truly know whether she is smiling or not. If you have ever tried painting someone, sometimes they try to keep a straight face and sometimes thes smile cause it feels awkward. Perhaps he was trying to capture that moment, capture more than just a still, but an awkward emotion of his subject. We'll probably never know for sure, but the visual effect has already been proven.

    The Cat has that same smirk on his face as well. I guess that's why his brother cat, Louie the Large reaches out and slugs him in the face as he passes by. It seems like it for no reason, but now that you've brought up the Mona Lisa smirk, it all makes sense! I can now understand why you want to slug your boss. I wouldn't recommend it though.

    I think that many proper tea drinking British ladies find her smirk just a bit too maddening. It is that catty and somewhat cheeky smile that intimates that she may have been sleeping with their husbands while they were stuck on the subway eating fish and chips. I once threw a soup bowl at The Last Supper because it seem to imply that the service was too slow. As a waiter I deeply resented the implication.

    I think in this case it was that blasted teacup song that did it!

    That and the fact that the Mona Lisa is a depiction of an alien!!

    And for those of you who like to laugh and are not too uptight, why not give my question a try?

    What the heck? Stendhal Syndrome, a rare condition that causes dizziness, confusion or violent acts when an individual is exposed to art.

    LOL, I suggest the large industrial coffee mug.

    Plain and simple, she looks like a drunken tart to me. She looks like she's been waiting on a bar stool all night waiting for some guy to pick her up. She probably had her skirts hitched up all night waiting for the paint to dry. Poor DaVinci never did get paid for that pic.

    Well ...... as I consider Mona Lisa's expression in general ...her erect posture ....

    ... those eyes ....... and that "condescending little smirk" ...... I think ......

    ... if I had a guilty conscience ...something to hide ....well ...."She would know" ....

    ..... perhaps, that is what bothers some people .......

    I think it's her left-leaning politics.
