An art lover is walking through the city.

He notices a mangy cat lapping milk from a saucer.

The cat is in the doorway of a pet store.

The art lover is like, 'wha...?!?'

While the cat is old and unattractive...

...He notices that the saucer is extremely old and very valuable.

The saucer is so valuable, it could pay his house off.

He's nervously hatches a brilliant plan.

He casually saunters into the store.

He says to the owner, "I love this cat. I could use a cat to chase away mice."

He says, "I'll buy him, how much do you want?"

The pet store owner says, "$50."

The art lover thought it was steep, but holy cow, that saucer will bring in many thousands.

He quickly agreed, handing over the Benjamin and picking up the cat.

He said, "For that price, though, can you throw in the saucer?"

In his mind, the art lover can see his jealous friend's faces when he shows him his haul.

All for a cat he'll just toss away in the alley on the way home.

But the store owner shakes his head and says, "No. No, way."

The art lover says, "No way?"

The store owner says, "Yeah, that's my lucky saucer. I just got it out and I've already sold twenty cats already this morning."
