I've revised the ending of this flash dark humour but the original isn't mine. Does any one know who wrote it first, or who sent it to me? It creased me up the first I saw it, but feel by rewriting the end from where Edna spoke her line to the director, is better.

Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim  jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.
Edna jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out.

When the medical director became aware of Edna's heroic act, he ordered her to be discharged from the hospital as he now considered her to be mentally stable.
When he went to tell Edna the news he 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 sound mind. The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself right after you saved him, with his bathrobe belt, in the bathroom. I am so sorry, but he's dead."

As she waited at the bus stop, Edna muttered to herself: "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."

The Mastah, muahahaaaa....

 grin That's hilarious.

Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]

That's a good one, Geoff! I seem to remember seeing it ages ago and it pops up in loads of blogs and forums. Probably one of those 'anon' jokes.
