A New York attorney representing a wealthy art collector called and
asked to speak to his client, “Saul, I have some good news and, I
have some bad news.”
The art collector replied, “I’ve had an awful day; let’s hear the
good news first.”
The lawyer said, “Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed
me that she invested $5,000 in two pictures that she thinks will
bring a minimum of $15-20 million, and I think she could be right.”
Saul replied enthusiastically, “Well done! My wife is a brilliant businesswoman!
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 with your secretary.”
