Jokey Joke: The Love Story of Ralph and Edna

         Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to,
         doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.  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 him 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’re being discharged, since you were
         able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of
         the person you love.  I have concluded that your act displays sound
         mindedness.                   

         The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his
         bathrobe belt right after you saved him.  I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’

         Edna replied, ‘He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry.  How
         soon can I go home?’
