Hung Out To Dry

John and David were patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the swimming pool, John suddenly dove into the deep end. He sank to the bottom and stayed there. David promptly jumped in and saved him.

The medical director learned of David's heroic act & almost immediately ordered that David be discharged from the mental hospital. He felt, in light of his heroism, that David had amply displayed that he was mentally sound.

The doctor said, "David, we have good news and bad news for you. The good news is that we are going to discharge you because you have regained your senses. Since you were able to jump in and save another patient you must be mentally stable. The bad news is that the patient whom you saved hung himself in the bathroom and died."

David replied, "Doctor, he didn't hang himself. I hung him there to dry."
