The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director, "How do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized?"

"Well," said the director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," I said "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

A great classic joke! Reminds me of another:
A doctor had a flat tire and rolled to a stop in front of a mental asylum. He took off the flat tire, placing all of the lug nuts in the hubcap. As he put the spare on he kicked the hupcap and all the lugnuts spilled down the grate into the sewer. As he wondered what he was going to do, a patient yelled from the window "Take on lugnut off of each wheel and that should get you to a mechanic." The doctor was amazed and asked how he came up with that idea. The patient said "I'm not in here because I am stupid!"

A very smart woman informed me last night that Mo-T-Mu was in the game, but then I totally spaced on it.
