Bathtub madness test

It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started. During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. " A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No." said the Director, " A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

We work in a madhouse.

How often does someone suggest that we have a choice between two or more crazy campaigns, even when the sensible option might be to just do nothing!

Should I admit to not even thinking about the plug?
