McKenna ON A MONDAY: Comedians in the frame.

THE removal of Leonardo da Vinci's Madonna With The Yarnwinder is like one of the biggest wind-ups in Scottish history.

The theft mirrored a Chewin' The Fat sketch involving the theft of Van Gogh's Sunflowers. The name of the painting even gives a clue to the gag -`yarn' meaning tall tale and `winder' as in wind-up. If that wasn't enough, the painting's supposed to have been done around the 15th century, but just about everyone knows that Madonna first appeared in the early Eighties with Holiday.
