Wanting a portrait with which to surprise his wife, a businessman asked a blonde female painter he'd been recommended to paint him in the nude.
"No," the talented blonde artist said. "I don"t do that sort of thing."
"But what if I double your fee?" he pleaded.
"Nope, sorry. Won't do it."
"How about I give you five times what you normally get?"
"Oh, okay then," said the artist, "but I'm keeping my socks on. I need a place to put my brushes."
