    Some humor to start the month off right.

    The Rescue

    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. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out.
    When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, for she now 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 to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of another patient, I have concluded that your act displays a clearly sound mind.
    But, the bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead."
    Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."
