Christina Applegate

Following a doctor ordered MRI, physicians have diagnosed Christina Applegate with an early form a breast cancer. Her rep released a statement that says as long as Christina follows the recommended treatment, she should make a full recovery.

If I were a doctor and I had to tell someone they had cancer, I’d do it in the form of a knock-knock joke. You know, try to bring some levity to the situation.

Me: “Knock knock.”
Patient: “Who’s there?”
Me: “Breast cancer”
Patient: “Um… breast cancer who?”
Me: “Breast cancer you. You have it! We need to remove your breasts. Hahahahahahha.”
Patient: “That’s not funny at all.”
Me: “Oh.”
