Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they
were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Ralph 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 Ralph out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of
Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the
hospital, as 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 sound mindedness. The bad
news is, Ralph, 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"

Edna replied "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can
I go home?"
