OzTREKK Funny Friday

This guy goes into a doctor’s office. The doctor says, “Oh, Mr. Jones! We have the results of your test. Do you want the bad news first or the very bad news?”

The guy shrugs and says, “Well I guess I’ll have the bad news first.”

“Well the bad news is, you have twenty-four hours to live,” the doctor replies.

The man is distraught, “Twenty-four hours to live? That’s horrible! What could be worse than that? What’s the VERY bad news?”

The doctor folds his hands and sighs. “The very bad news is…I’ve been trying to contact you since yesterday.”


OzTREKK is the Canadian expert on Australian medical schools. Every year, we help hundreds of Canadian students choose the right Australian medical school program. Ninety percent of the international students studying medicine at the University of Queensland applied via OzTREKK. OzTREKK is the most trusted source of information for international students looking at studying medicine in Australia.
