It is Voltaire who takes credit for this gem of wisdom. Lord Byron notably said, “Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.” It is often said that laughter is the best medicine so here’re a few of my favourites from the others:

"I went to the doctor the other day, I said 'it hurts when I do that' -
he said 'well don't do it'."

Tommy Cooper

"Man: Doctor, I swallowed the dictionary!

Doctor: Don't breathe a word to anybody."

Harry Hill

"Man: Doctor, I can't stop stealing things.

Doctor: Take these tablets for 2 weeks. If that doesn't work, get me a high-definition plasma telly."

Harry Hill

Sorry, couldn’t find anything funny that Jeremy Hunt has said…but he did do this.
