    Art Connoisseur

    An art connoisseur passed a little grocery in New York when he noticed a kitten on the front step lapping up some milk in a bowl.
    The cat was mangy with one ear half chewed off and clumps of fur missing.
    What really caught the collectors eye was the bowl the kitten was drinking from.
    It was a rare antique worth thousands. He walks in the store and offers $20.00 for the cat. "He's not for sale." Says the store owner.
    "That's ridiculous!" Says the collector. "He is one of the ugliest cats I've seen. He must be for sale. I'll give you $100.00 for him."
    The store owner thought for a second and said "It's a deal."
    The connoisseur hands the store owner the money, which he quickly pockets, and as he starts out the store asks
    "For that price I'm sure you wont mind sending that old bowl with him. He seems so happy drinking from it."
    The store owner says " No way. That's my lucky bowl. From that bowl I've sold 26 cats this week!"
