Bad And Worse News

A man picked up the phone, and on the other end was his Doctor. The Doctor said "you'd better sit down...I have some bad news, and some worse news for you. Which do you want to hear first?"

The man paused for a moment thinking about the odd choices that he was faced with, and told the Doctor that they were very unusual choices. The Doctor insisted which news he wanted to hear first, and the man told him that he would listen to the bad news first. The Doctor said, well, we have gone over the tests we ran the other day, and it seems that you only have 24 hours to live. The man was stunned, and he with trembling speech he asked the Doctor, "well if that was the bad news, then what is the worse news?" The Doctor replied, "we have been trying to get in touch with you for a day"!
