A Famous Art Collector Is Walking. –
A famous art collector is walking through the middle of London.
When he notices a rather tatty-looking cat lapping milk from a saucer in the doorway of a store and he does a double-take.
He recognises that the saucer is extremely old and very valuable,
So he walks casually into the store and offers to buy the cat for two quid.
The store owner replies
“I’m sorry, but the cat isn’t for sale. “
The collector says,
“Please, I need a hungry cat around the house to catch mice. I’ll pay you twenty quid for that cat.”
OK, said the owner.
“Sold,” and hands over the cat.
The collector continues,
“Hey, for the twenty quid I wonder if you could throw in that old saucer. The cat’s used to it and it’ll save me from having to get a dish.”
And the owner says,
“Sorry pal, but that’s my lucky saucer. So far this week I’ve sold sixty-eight cats.
