A man visits a doctor for his checkup, and after some tests, the doctor comes back with a grave look on his face.
“Well,” the doctor says, “I have some bad news, and I have some really bad news.”
The man leans forward, “Well, tell me the really bad news first.”
“Okay, you have cancer and probably have only 6 months to live.”
“Wow, and the bad news?” the man asked.
“You also have Alzheimer’s disease.”
“Oh, that’s great,” the guy said, “For a minute there I thought you were going to tell me I had cancer.”
