This got me chuckling....

The Bathtub Test

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

"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?"

The point is to answer the question in the coolest calmest tone possible. If you have a long experience then you must not be doing same thing all years.

A white horse walked into a bar and the barman said, "Why the long face"

"Very droll", said the white horse, "I'll have a pint of lager".

"Would you ike a whisy chaser?" asked the barman, "we even have a whisky names after you"

"What? Eric?"

Well I have been wondering all these years how long it would take for the beds next to me to be filled.
So glad to have some company at last!!

It's been a bit mad in here lately what with the bifurcated split personalities and the cows mumbling about squirrels in here. Could never understand why they let them in in the first place.

Two cows standing in a field...

First Cow: "Are you worried about mad cow disease?"

Second Cow: "Good grief; a talking Cow!"

Mad Cow Disease

Two cows in a field having a chat and chewing the cud. One says to the other:

" This CJD thing is terrible isn't it?"

"What do you mean?" says the other cow

" You know this mad cow disease that's going around"

" Well, I'm not worried. It won't affect me" replies the second cow

"How come ?" The first cow seems intrigued.

'Well, 'cos I'm a squirrel!'

Reminds me of an old Jewish joke:

Sadie went to see her doctor.

"Doctor, I need your help badly," she said, "I just can't help talking to myself."

"Do you suffer any pain?" asked the doctor.


"In that case," said the fine doctor, "go home and don't worry any more - lots of people talk to themselves... It's really nothing to worry about Sadie."

"But doctor," cried Sadie, "you have absolutely no idea what a boring person I am!" :-)

Heh - They also say the first sign of madness is when you start talking to yourself...

The second (sure) sign is when you start talking back

They say the first sign of madness is hairs growing on the palm of your hand...

The second sign is.....

....looking for them!

Robert - yep, I (sadly) quite regularly laugh out loud at my desk reading a comment, jokey email or blog...

My secretary - a rather stern Polish lady - is convinced I am quite mad...



and dy'a know -- she's probably correct! ;-)
Contributed by Robert Turner on 02-Aug-2010 22:33
Haha - That actually made me laugh out loud at my desk (causing some rather entertaining eyebrow raising by my colleagues, who of course demanded I share the fun)

Good stuff!

I said plug but everyone else said bucket

Is madness contagious?
