a joke only funny to me

Since I mentioned The Furniture Guys incidentally at http://k0s.org/blog/20130223083404 recently, I thought I'd mention this bit that goes on in my head... Its not actually funny, and I don't know why I find it so amusing. They would always say on the show "You're not painting a masterpiece." So I'd roll this thing around in my head, "That's too bad that they never do masterpieces." I finally wrote them as follows:

On your show, you would often say, "You're not painting a masterpiece", or variants thereof. While this is correctly important to keep in mind for the scoping of the projects as presented, after awhile it made me sad. I realized that you were never painting masterpieces on the show. Why didn't you ever do masterpieces? Maybe, I dunno, get the Louvre to commission you or something. I think if you did more masterworks you would be more successful, at the risk of alienating your audience.

I don't know why it amuses me. I know its in poor form to laugh at your own jokes but thought I'd share anyway.
