Waiting for the Big Break

by Elizabeth Emerald

Antiques Road Show: sneak preview of upcoming episode.

A  man walks on set gingerly holding a blue-and-white porcelain vase and presents it for appraisal.

The appraiser asks how he came in possession of the vase.

The man says he bought it at a yard sale. 

The appraiser asks how much he paid.

The man says he got it for three bucks.

After examining the vase, the appraiser hands it back. He informs the man that the vase is from the early Ming Dynasty and would sell at auction for $120,000.

The flabbergasted fellow drops the vase on the tile floor.
