Family Jewels

An elderly woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist "Paint me with diamond earrings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby broach, and a gold Rolex."

"But you're not wearing any of those things," said the artist.

"I know," she said. "It's in case I die before my husband. I'm sure he'll remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry."
