​An artist asked the gallery manager if anybody asked about his paintings.

“Well, there’s good news and there’s bad news,” said the owner. “The good one is that a gentleman liked your work and asked if its value would appreciate after your death. When I said yes, he bought all 20 of your paintings.”

“But that’s fantastic,” whooped the artist. “What could possibly be the bad news?”

“The gentleman was your doctor.”
