Warden Thought He Had a Great Idea But It’s the Mental Patient Who Gets the Last Laugh
At a mental asylum, the warden decided they were overcrowded. One day, he thought of a way to keep the population down. They had all the mental patients bring an object up and tell them what it is.
One patient brought a pillow. The keeper asked, “What do you have there?”
The patient said, “This is my baby.”
They took her back to her room.
Another one brought a box, and said, “It was a time machine.”
Another brought a sofa and said it was a car…
Finally, when they got to the last patient, they noticed he was dragging a matchbox by a string he had tied to it.
Hopelessly they asked, “What do you have there?”
To their surprise he said, “This is a matchbox tied to a string.”
Doubtfully they asked, “Are you sure that’s not your dog?”
Angered the patient said, “Does that look like a dog to you?”
Evidently, they were dealing with a sane man, so they made the decision to let him go…
Three steps outside the asylum, the patient then turned to the matchbox and excitedly yelled, “We fooled them Fido! We fooled them!!!”
He sure fooled them didn’t he? Now he can finally taste freedom with Fido!
