Good News and Bad News For You

A struggling artist stops by the studio where his recent work is hanging for sale. The owner tells him he has good news and bad news.

“The good news is that a man dropped by the studio today and put in an offer to buy every single piece. He just wanted my guarantee that the works would be worth twice what he paid if you were to pass away. I told him they would double, possibly triple, in value. So he bought them all.”

“Whoa!” exclaims the artist. “That’s fantastic. What could be the bad news?”


“The guy is your doctor,” the owner says.
