In Ireland there is a mental institution that every year picks two of it’s
most reformed patients and questions them. If they get the questions right
they are free to leave.

This year the two lucky gents were Patty and Mike.

They were called down to the office and left there by the orderly. They were
told to wait as the doctor got their files.

The doctor came out and motioned for Patty to come in for his questioning.
When Patty came into the office he was instructed to sit in the seat across
from the doctor.

“Patty you know the tradition of this institution so I imagine you know why
you are here. You will be asked two questions, and if you get them right, you
will be free to go.

"Mike, what would happen if I cut off your other ear?"

"I would be completely blind," he answered with a smile as if he knew he had

But then the doctor asked him what his reasoning was, and he said flatly, "Me
hat would fall down over me eyes."
