Good Art, Bad News

Using the same technology as their Street View, Google has now done Fine Art. Featuring world famous art from museums all over the world.



An artist who had an exhibition on display at a local art museum asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings.

"Well," the owner began, "I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that I did receive one inquiry about your work. The gentleman asked if the value of your paintings would go up once you had passed away."

"What did you tell him?" asked the artist.

"Well, I told him that the value of most every artist's work appreciates in value upon their passing."

"What did he say?"

"He didn't say anything. He just took out his wallet and purchased 15 of your works on the spot. That's the good news."

"My, that's wonderful!" exclaims the artist. "What could the bad news be?"

"The gentleman said he was your doctor."
