A Comment On Madness: From Anorak’s Forums

From Anorak Forums:

Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have. Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out. When the Head Nursing Director became aware of Edna’s heroic act, she immediately ordered Edna to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered Edna to be mentally stable. When she
went to tell Edna the news she said, “Edna, I have good new and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged. Since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of another patient I have concluded your act displays you have a sound mind. The bad news is Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he is dead.”Edna replied, “He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?”
