What else? – Nothing, but humor!

One day at commencing of an OPD in an asylum, the only patient brought before the team of doctors was interviewed with the typical question as “When we discharge you after fully cured, what will you do  first?” The patient  replied instantly, “I’ll collect  some  pieces of  stones, throw  them towards all windows  and  doors of your  hospital  made of  glass and  break  them  down.” The question and  its answer were recorded on the case paper and he was admitted as an indoor patient for treatment.

After three months, the same patient was asked the same question and to the satisfaction of doctors he replied, “Sirs, I’ll try to have a job for earning.”

“Very good! What next?”

“I’ll save money and marry a beautiful woman.”

Doctors were excited as they were getting different answers with signs of cure.


“I’ll ask my wife to prepare a cup of coffee for me.”

“Excellent! What then?”

“I’ll ask her to bring for me the pair of pincers and our son’s old trousers.”

Doctors were somewhat confused, even though they continued to ask further, “What next, dear friend?”

“I’ll cut the elastic strip from trousers, tie it with the ends of pincers and make a pellet-bow.”

“Oh! My God, but why?”

“To throw pieces of stones with it to break down the glasses of all the doors and windows of your hospital! What else?”

    Sir, Having enjoyed your piece of homor, I incline to narrate here one true story of an airman who wanted his discharge from Airforce. One day to the surprise of his friends and co-workers, the airman was picking any loose pieces of papers he found and put in his pockets. After some days, he was asked the reason for such a strange habit. But he did not explain anything and kept mum. The matter was reported to the higher officers, but he did not say anything and continued his activity passionately. Then the case was referred to the doctors to examine if the airman had gone insane. There he also kept mum and picked up papers and pocketed them. On getting doctors’ opinion, one day he was handed over his discharge letter. Then he said very softly and smilingly, “This was the only paper that I was looking for!”
