Friday Funnies: Jim And Edna

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 director of Nursing became aware of Edna’s heroic act, she considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, “Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged.

Since you were able to rationally respond by jumping in and saving the life of another patient, I have concluded that your act displays a sound mind. The bad news is that Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in his bathroom with the belt to his robe right after you saved him. I am sorry, but he’s dead.”

Edna replied, “He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry.

How soon can I go home?”

  • LOL. I would have done the same thing Enda. It’s the other people who are crazy not the “crazy people.” I mean he was wet.

  • What is crazy to some, is perfectly sane/logical to others.

    Smile and the whole world smiles with you.
    Laugh maniacally and they’ll tend to avoid you….

  • Mental hospitals have POOLS?!?!?

  • See if she had thrown him the dryer then she would be crazy, because he would have shrunk.

  • Good one! Have a wonderful weekend doing something fun and just for you!

  • LMAO – that was great.

  • Ha ha! That was great!

  • Hey sweety,

    I’ve heard that before. That’s a funny one! Don’t forget to add a link from where you got it. ;o)

  • Hmmm smart idea…….

  • That’s what I call dark humor. I was all over that sort of stuff when I was a depressed teenager.

  • Hehehe.. I like that one!!

  • Sorry, she still goes home. Anyone who could come up with an answer sound as hers was as quickly as she did is just fine. The response of an insane person would simply make no sense.

    Makes sense…he did need to dry out, didn’t he? But there are those that would rightfully question my sanity too.

  • Hahahaha. Go Edna!!!
