Poor Doctor Payne

Two men met and started talking. One of them was very unhappy.

Man 1: Life is awful. Every single thing in this world is ugly and dull.

Man 2: Oh, dear, said the happy man. I think you’re very ill. You need to see the best psychiatrist in the world. His name is Doctor Payne. He’s the only man who can help you.

Man 1: I am Doctor Payne, replied the man, sadly.
