A Visit to Mental Asylum

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director, “What is the critera that defines a patient to be institutionalized?” “Well…” said the Director, “we fill up a bathtub, and offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask them to  empty the bathtub.”

  1. Would you use the spoon?
  2. Would you use the teacup?
  3. Would you use the bucket?

“Oh, I understand,” said the visitor. “A normal person would  choose the bucket as it is larger than the spoon or the teacup.”

“Noooooo,” answered the Director. “A normal person would pull the plug.”
