It's not every day you see Mona Lisa lookalike with a grenade launcher on the streets of Los Angeles. Photojournalist Nick Stern recreated 8 famous Banksy images using live models and props pieced together from eBay and thrift shops. Shooting guerrilla-style in true Banksy form, the photographer was even chased by a security guard at one point.

In other news, Amy Winehouse's London townhouse is on the market and Long Island holds the classiest McDonald's in the country. See the headlines after the jump.
