A Bit of Nonsense

Test for Mental Patients
During a visit to a mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what is the criteria that defines a patient to be institutionalised.
"Well", said the Director, "we fill a bathtub with water, then we offer the patient a teaspoon, a cup, and a bucket, and ask them to empty the bathtub".
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor.  "A normal person would choose the bucket as it is the largest."
"No," answered the Director.  "A normal person would pull the plug out."

Did You Know? 
Donald Duck comics were once banned in Finland because Donald doesn't wear pants.

English is a funny language, and when it is translated from a foreigner's point of view, it can be quite hilarious, as these signs show.
Outside a Hong Kong dress shop:  Ladies have fits upstairs.
In a Rome laundry:  Ladies, leave your clothes here and spend the afternoon having a good time.
On the door of a Moscow hotel room:   If this is your first visit to the USSR, you are welcome to it.
In a Tokyo bar:  Special cocktails for the ladies with nuts.
In the window of a Swedish furrier:  Fur coats made for ladies from their own skin.

Now we know why they're called Gen Y.
