A New York attorney representing a very wealthy art collector called
and asked to speak to his client.
“Mr. O’Toole, I have some good news and I have some bad news.”
The art collector replied, “You know, I’ve had an awful day, Jack, so
let’s hear the good news first.”
The lawyer said, “Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed
me that she has invested only $5,000 in two very nice pictures that
she thinks will bring somewhere between $15 and $20 million … and I think she could be right.”
The collector replied enthusiastically, “Holy cow! Well done! My wife is a brilliant business woman, isn’t she? You’ve just made my day. Now, I know I can handle the bad news. What is it?
The lawyer replied, “The pictures are of you and your secretary.”
