An artist had some paintings on display in a gallery, and he stopped in one day to ask the owner if there had been any interest in his work.
“I have good news and bad news,” the owner replied. “The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your paintings and wondered if they’d appreciate in value after your death. When I said yes, he bought all twelve!”
“That’s terrific!” the artist exclaimed. “So what’s the bad news?”
“Well,” the owner said, “the gentleman was your doctor.”

LIFE IMITATES TV

ON TV: In 2009, The Big Bang Theory’s Howard (Simon Helberg) designs a toilet for the International Space Station, and it breaks.

IN REAL LIFE: Not long after the episode aired, the ISS toilet broke.

ON TV: On a 1993 Seinfeld episode, Elaine’s (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) boyfriend shares the name of a killer, so she suggests he change it to something more “innocent,” like O. J.

IN REAL LIFE: A year later, football legend O. J. Simpson was arrested for double homicide.

Most watched TV interview: Barbara Walters talking with Monica Lewinsky (1999).
