"Mr Jones, please get dressed, and I'll see you in a minute."

The old man put on his clothes and shuffled into the doctor's reception room and sat down heavily. The doctor gave him a tight-lipped smile.  "I have good news and bad news.  Which would you like to hear first?"

"Well," replied the old man hesitantly, "I suppose give me the bad news first."

"You have cancer," continued the doctor, "and I estimate that you have about one year left."

The old man looked aghast.  "Oh no! That's awful! But, what kind of good news could you give me, after that??"

The doctor replied, "You also have Alzheimer's. In about three months you are going to forget everything I said."
