Anti-oil activists have apparently decided to take out their anger against fossil fuels on priceless works of art. Just a week or so after two nutjobs threw tomato soup on a multi-million-dollar Van Gosh piece – don’t worry, ya’ll, the painting’s fine – two more idiots likewise just tossed a pile of mashed potatoes on a Monet.

Cell phone video captured the moment the two climate radicals chucked a container full of mush at Claude Monet's "Les Meules," a 1890’s-era masterpiece hanging in the Museum Barberini in Potsdam, Germany. Like the Van Gogh, the sealed painting wasn’t damaged.

The activists, reportedly members of a group called “Last Generation,” then glued themselves to the wall below the painting.

"We are in a climate catastrophe, and all you're afraid of is tomato soup or mashed potatoes on a painting," one of the activists said, per an English translation.

To be fair, I don't think any of us are afraid for the painting so much as pissed that a bunch of morons with no jobs and too much free time are slinging gloop at works of art created by people who actually contributed something meaningful to civilization.
