A guy was clearing out the attic of a home he had just purchased, when he came upon an old painting and a violin.
Thinking they might be valuable, he took them to the auction house to be valued.
After studying them, the appraiser said, “Mr Cooper, I have good news and I have bad news.”
“What’s the good news?” the guy asked.
“The good news is that you have a Stradivarius and a Picasso,” replied the appraiser.
“Fantastic! What’s the bad news?”
“Well sir, the bad news is that Stradivarius was a very bad painter and Picasso made lousy violins!”
