Most funny stories are based on comic situations. In spite of national differences, certain funny situations have a universal attraction. No matter where you live, you would find it difficult not to laugh at, say Charlie Chaplin's early films. However, a new type of humour, which starts largely from the U．S., has recently come into fashion. It is called “sick humour”．
Comedians base their jokes on tragic situations like violent death or serious accidents. The following “sick humour” will enable you to amuse yourself.
A man who had broken his right leg was taken to hospital a few weeks before Christmas. From the moment he arrived there, he kept on bothering his doctor to tell him when he would be able to go home. He was afraid of having to spend Christmas in hospital. Though the doctor did his best, the patient's recovery was slow. On Christmas Day, the man still had his right leg in plaster(石膏)．
He spent a miserable day in bed thinking of all the fun he was missing. The following day, however, the doctor consoled him by telling him that his chances of being able to leave hospital in time for New Year celebrations were good. The man took heart and, sure enough, on New Year's Eve he was able to hobble(蹒跚) along to a party. To make up for his unpleasant experiences in hospital, the man drank a little more than it was good for him. In the process, he enjoyed himself thoroughly and kept telling everybody how much he hated hospitals. He was still murmuring something about hospitals at the end of the party when he slipped on a piece of ice and broke his left leg.

A program developed by the Prime Minister David Cameron in Britain was run to measure the nation's well?being(幸福感)recently.
The Office for National Statistics(ONS) analysed responses from more than 2,000 people. The results showed that job security, personal health and relationships between family members were at the top three of most people's concerns.
Other key factors of a happy life were parents' sense of the security of their children's future. Parents are often concerned whether their children can have a good life and a nice place to live. People were more likely to consider having a job to be important to them than being paid a high salary.
Anastasia, a social policy analyst, said employment was central to people's sense of identity and well?being. “A job is about your life; it is not about your income，” she said, “It is about every aspect—having the motivation to get up in the morning, self?respect and being a role model for your children. Income is almost secondary to that. People's lives fall apart if they don't have a job. They are much more likely to be depressed if they are out of work, and there is a strong relationship between unemployment and family breakdown and health difficulties.”
The Prime Minister launched the program in an attempt to create a broader measure of Britain's success than the performance of the economy. Mr Cameron said governments had a role in helping people feel better and that the national well?being index should help wider society build a better life.
Paul Allin, director of the well?being project at the ONS, said the program would combine objective data, such as employment and life expectancy rates, with subjective(主观的) measures, such as job satisfaction and self?reported health, to give a more complete picture of national well?being. “We want to encourage people to tell us what matters to them，” he said, “The more responses we have to the debate, the more realistic a picture of the UK we will have.”
