his one I heard in a TV show
A man went away on a trip, and he left his cat with his brother. And the man used to call every night to see how the cat was. So one night he calls, he says " How's my cat?" and the brother said " The cat got hit by a car and died." And the man got furious because he explained the news so bluntly. So the brother said " How should I have told you?" The man said " Well when I called, you should have said the cats on the roof, and we cant get it down. Then the next day when I called, you should have said the cat fell off the roof, but the vet is patching it up. And then the third day when I called you could have said the cat passed away. And that way I would have been prepared for it, dont you see? The brother apologized for being so thoughtless. The man said "okay, okay.. by the way, how's mom?" The brother said " Mom's on the roof and we cant get her down"
