Good news and bad news

Doctor : I have some good news and some bad news for you, Mr. Mendel.
Mr. Mendel : Oh, I see. {Hesitating] tell me the good news first.
Doctor : You have 24 hours to live.
Mr. Mendel : 24 hours to live! That's your idea of good news?! What can the bad news possibly be that's worse??!!
Doctor : Apologies, I forgot to call you yesterday.
