RIDDLE - Visiting a mental asylum


        During a visit to a mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criteria is that defines if 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 the patient to empty the bathtub."

        Okay, here's your test:
        1. Would you use the spoon?
        2. Would you use the teacup?
        3. Would you use the bucket?

        "Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would choose the bucket, as it is larger than the spoon."
        What was the director's response?
