Vincent van Gogh painting stolen from Singer Laren museum in the Netherlands

Museum directors ‘shocked and incredibly pissed off’

I wonder what is the Dutch for 'incredibly pissed off'.

FWIW, the Dutch for "pissed off" is kwaad, or boos, or pissig or nijdig. Probably--but I don't know for sure--the museum directors used one or the other of the first two words I listed above.

Dirty? Some people might say, that 'cleaning in progress' is a beneficial activity.
