Unbreakable Sense Of Humor: Woman Shares Series Of “Unhinged Things My Boyfriend Has Said Since Getting Diagnosed With Cancer”

boyfriend diagnosed with cancer

When you hear hard news, there are a lot of different ways to respond. When he found out he had cancer, this girl’s boyfriend took the comedy route — and she’s been recording all his jokes since.

Note: what’s hard for one is funny for others. Coping with cancer is hard and there’s nothing wrong with handling heavy things with a light heart. Don’t worry, his humor isn’t too dark — his girlfriend notes in one of her posts that “he isn’t terminal, just dramatic.”

Now let’s check out some of the cancer jokes this boyfriend has made. You’ll love ’em.

1. “I should’ve gotten cancer sooner. My Insta post has so many likes and comments right now.”

This girl’s boyfriend is using cancer for clout. I can respect that.

2. After he came home from the fertility clinic, he said, “Just dropped the kids off at daycare!”

Well… you’re not totally wrong, depending how we define any number of things.

3. “Can you believe I got cancer before GTA 6?”

This joke is a reference to the fact the video game Grand Theft Auto 6 is taking absolutely forever to come out.

We Gen-Z’ers are notoriously impatient. I think her boyfriend would perhaps prefer to trade the cancer for GTA.

4. “Apparently I should’ve had my mid-life crisis at like 13.”

Ahhhh, this one is a bit dicey.

But I see what he means.

5. “What if this is actually just a big prank, like they do surgery on the tumor and are like… psych! It was benign.”

That’d be pretty awesome. I’m sure this boyfriend’s love would prefer that over continuing to listen to his cancer jokes.

6. This boyfriend’s gal told him he should probably eat less Cane’s, to which he responded “What is it going to do? Give me cancer?”

That is so valid, king.

Handling devastating news like a cancer diagnosis is one of the hardest things a person can go through. But this sweet gal sharing her boyfriend’s cancer jokes is just one way to remind everyone that, no matter what you’re going through, laughter is still available.
