Lawyer reads bad news and good news

Joke about lawyer delivering some very bad news to his client, but then some good news.

The ironic part is the good news really isn’t that great.

Lawyer: I have some good news and some bad news.

Client: Well, give me the bad news first.

Lawyer: The bad news is that the DNA tests showed that it was your blood they found all over the crime scene.

Client: Oh no! I’m ruined! What’s the good news?

Lawyer: The good news is your cholesterol is down to 130!
