Daily Joke: A Wealthy Man Asks a Famous Painter to Paint His Wife
An artist's job can be tough, especially if you're in the business of painting portraits. Here's what happened when a wealthy man hired a famous painter to paint a picture of his wife.
A wealthy man wanted portraits of his family hanging on the walls of his mansion and commissioned a professional painter for the job. He wanted to start with his wife and told the painter to get started.
Weeks went by, and the painter finally arrived at the mansion, holding a canvas covered with a white cloth. When he revealed the finished painting, it looked nothing like the man's wife.

THE PAINTING IS NOT ACCURATE
Furious, the man exclaimed, "Is this a joke, the woman on the canvas is nothing like my wife. A portrait should at least resemble the person."
The artist insisted that the woman was his wife. To prove his point, the man produced his wife's picture from his wallet and showed it to the painter.

After gazing at it for a while, the painter said, "Small, isn't she?"

"Go on," the priest said. "You can confess anything in the house of the lord." The man paused for a second, let out a smile, and said, "Yesterday, I picked up two younger ladies hitchhiking. We went to the bar and had some drinks."
