A doctor has come to see one of his patients in a hospital. The patient has had major surgery to both of his hands.
"Doctor," says the man excitedly and dramatically holds up his heavily bandaged hands. "Will I be able to play the piano when these bandages come off?"
"I don't see why not," replies the doctor.
"Excellent " says the man "I wasn't sure, what with the injury I received and all that, I am actually a clasically trained pianist and I am performing a concert next week so....phew."
The doctor replies "For a minute there I thought you were going to say that you couldn't play the piano before, you know, that cheesy old joke that people always tell."
The man smiled "No, I am not as immature as that."
They both laughed.
"However" the doctor said "please don't book any more concerts as I just got your results back and you have lung cancer and it is terminal so i am afraid you are going to die."
Once again, they both laughed.
