The Two Mona Lisas and the Clown Baby

Vastderp, a Tumblr user with an attitude, posted the two pictures above: the Mona Lisa in the Louvre and the Mona Lisa of the Prado, which appears to be a Renaissance copy and may (may) give us a better idea of the da Vinci's original colors. This exchange followed:

commenter 2: Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo da Vinci himself is "SHE'S GOT EYEBROWS." All intelligent life has been lost.

vastderp: Yo Snooty McSnotwine, the Mona Lisa's vanished eyebrows have the been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, since long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
