The Worst News

Sean calls Dr. O’Mahony and says "Happy New Year, Doctor.  I’m returning the call ye left for me before the holiday."

Dr. O’Mahony says, "Happy New Year to ye too, but I wish ye’d a-called sooner, for I have bad news and worse news, Sean.

"Oh dear," Sean replies.  "What’s the bad news?"

The doctor replies: "According to the test results that came back from your last examination, you only have 72 hours to live.

"That’s terrible," says Sean.  "How can the news possibly be worse?"

Dr. O’Mahony replies: "That’s why I called you last week."
