Big ears

One day at the Auckland Art Fair

Dealer: Excuse me would you mind not touching the sculpture.

Woman in her sixties: why not?

D: Ah...you wouldn't touch a painting would you?

W: But it's not a painting.

D: Well you wouldn't touch a sculpture if it was in a museum. 

W: I would… so you'll have to do better than that, particularly when your sculpture is so tempting to touch.

D: Ok, so can I touch your breasts? So tempting. 

W: (outrage)
Thanks J
