Some bad news and some very bad news
Doctor: I have some bad news and some very bad news for you.
Patient: Well, might as well give me the bad news first.
Doctor: The lab called with your test results. They said you have only 24 hours to live.
Patient: 24 HOURS! That’s terrible! What could be worse? What’s the very bad news?
Doctor: I’ve been trying to reach you since yesterday.
