    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?"
