A Psychiatrist And A Patient

A psychiatrist in an asylum is making his normal nightly rounds. He enters one patient’s room to find the man calmly laying on his bed with his arms out in front of him, staring at his hands. Meanwhile, another patient is in the room, hanging from the ceiling by his feet.The doctor asks the first patient what he’s doing.

“Oh, I’m just doing a little reading before I go to bed,” the patient replies.

“And why is your friend hanging from the ceiling?” the doctor asks.

In a conspiratorial tone, the patient says, “Well, doc, don’t tell him I said so, but he’s a little crazy. He thinks he’s a light bulb.”

“Don’t you think you should get him down from there before he hurts himself?”

“What?” the patient exclaims. “How do you expect me to read in the dark?”
