Jim and Mary 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 like a stone to the bottom and

stayed there. Mary promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom

and pulled him out.

When the medical director became aware of Mary's heroic act, he immediately

ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as he now considered her to

be mentally stable. When he went to tell her the news, he said, "Mary, 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 that Jim, the patient you saved, hanged himself in the

bathroom with the belt of his robe. I am so sorry, but he's dead".

Mary replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry".
