A man is taken into hospital and has some tests taken and is awaiting the doctor with the results. The doctor duly arrives and says to the man:
"I have some good news and some bad news..."
"I can take it Doc give me the bad news!" the man replies.
"I'm terribly sorry but we have to amputate both your legs," says the Doc as professionally as possible.
The man responds, "Well, Doc, this is terrible. At least I have the good news to come, go on Doc give it to me."
Doc replies, "Do you see the man in the opposite bed?"
"Yes, what about him?"
"He said he would buy your slippers."
