Another question, please

Post by Catsumi »

A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Mitch McConnel happened to appear. Mr. McConnel took the opportunity to schmooze
the good doctor a bit he asked him a question with which he was most at ease.

'Would you mind telling me, Doctor,' he asked, 'how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?'

'Nothing is easier,' he replied. 'You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track..'

'What sort of question?' asked McConnel.

Well, you might ask , 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?''

McConnel thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, 'You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history.'
