Mental Hospital & Old age – 2 Jokes

Mental Hospital

Tom and John were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool.

Tom suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

John promptly jumped in to save him. He swam to the bottom and pulled him out.

When the Senior Doctor became aware of John’s heroic act he immediately ordered him to be discharged from the hospital, as he now considered him to be mentally stable.

When John went to meet the Senior Doctor to tell what happened, he said, ‘John, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of a person. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Tom hung himself in the bathroom with a rope right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’

John replied:’He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry. Can I go home now?’

Old-age Joke

My mom called her friend Sally who is in her 90’s , about a party which she was going conduct.

“How are you going to do the arrangements?” she asked.

 “My children are coming for the weekend,” Sally said happily.

“You must be looking forward to that,” Mom said.

“Yes,” Sally replied, “but it’s a lot of work, washing the floors and making up their beds.”

“Why don’t you wait and have the children do it?” Mom suggested.

“Oh, no, I couldn’t do that,” Sally replied.

“They’re in their 70s!”

    Thank you Sharif123. Nice one! Poor principal!

    And SARA, please do not mix up the jokes! the first one about the mental hospital is a joke that is meant to make you laugh – perhaps, only!

    The second is a great moral – AND a perfect example of a mother!

    Second one shows that a child is always a child to a mother even the child is in old age. Its the nature of MOTHER.

    The first one is an old joke shows, that Doctors of Mental Hospitals are not matured enough to assess the madness.

    son was reluctant to go school. Mom asked why? Son replied” Nobody likes me. Everyone taunts me”. Mom said, ” Still you have to go because you are the principal of the school”.

      Nice. I knew that one before. But, written a bit more creatively, it would have made us laugh a lot more…

      Still, nice one 🙂
