    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've been discharged; here are your papers, not one thing can keep you here any longer, you are free as a bird. Since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in the pool and saving the life of another patient, it has been concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.

    Now the bad news: Ralph, the patient you saved, hung himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom right after you saved him.
    I am so sorry, but he's dead."

    Quietly, Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."
