I was standing in line in a thrift shop waiting to purchase this painting for $1.49. I had the face of the painting against my leg so that perhaps no one would notice how bad it was and think that I liked it. The woman behind me finally asked “Are you buying that for the picture or the frame?”

With a straight face I said “For the painting of course!”

She liked the wood frame, which is two and a half inches deep, and offered to pay for the painting, she would then keep the frame and give me the painting.
