Give Us A Break Already ...

Remember that post where I said I wanted to post my last riddle? Well, I lied! LOL! Since you guys all loved trying to solve that riddle which ended up with Emila, Aki and yours truly having serial killer like tendencies, I thought I'd post another riddle ... hahaha ...

Come on, don't make that face already. I know deep down inside you guys secretly crave for these riddles don't you? Come on, don't be shy, admit it already, I can see you all salivating already ... hehehe ...

But the challenge is trying to find a riddle that will stump you guys. You're all such geniuses that you make my riddles look like child's play. And it gets worse that I have to cheat to get the answers (just like Anny ... hahaha ...).

So, after spending hours digging through my riddle archive (what? you don't believe I have riddle archive?) I managed to come up with this one. It took me a while to figure out the answer and even then I got it wrong and had to take a peek at the answer (ok, ok, I cheated ... LOL!) Let's see how you guys do. And remember, no cheating or you'll be feeling a blast from my ray gun!

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?
