John & David were both patients in a Mental Hospital.One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, John suddenly dived in to the deep end. He sunk to the bottom & stayed there.
David promptly jumped in to save him. He swam to the bottom and pulled John out.
When the medical director became aware of David’s heroic act he immediately ordered David to be discharged from the hospital, as he now considered him to be mentally stable.
When he went to tell David the news he said ‘David, I have good news & bad news.
The good news is you’re being discharged because since you were able to jump in and save the life of another patient, I think you’ve regained your senses.
The bad news is, John, the patient you saved, hung himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’
David replied ‘He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry.’
