I've heard worse...

“I am so sorry to have to meet you under these circumstances.” The oncologist’s intro had been kind, the words that followed blunt: “undifferentiated carcinoma” “six months without treatment.”

Later, the waiter’s face was crestfallen.  “I’m afraid I have very bad news, we’re out of pate foie gras today.” We laughed so hard that we cried.

cancer sucks, but so does foie gras. if you think people suffer from health problems, it's nothing compared to the suffering of the ducks.
