The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how do
you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a
teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty
the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the
bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want
a bed near the window?"

Funny, but technically stupidity wouldn't be a mental disorder.

Try that on a test. They give you 3 possible answers and you write in your own answer.

Guaranteed to fail.

This is funny, but it seems implied that the water must come OUT of the tub and not simply down the drain =P

Stand on the bucket, tip over the bath.
When bath is empty, go and make tea.

Stand on bucket, tip over bath (fastest way to empty). When empty, go and make tea.

Turn bucket over, Strip, fold clothes and place on bucket, get into bathtub, dangle teacup loosely by handle then strike gently with spoon (causing a ringing tone) and declare loudly, "Room Service, I will need someone to bring me towels and a bathrobe, and to empty my bath when I am done!" Lay back in bath and relax.
