The Flat Tire and the Mental Institution

A man had a flat tire in front of an institution for the mentally insane.

It was getting close to dark as he hurriedly started to change the tire.

He noticed one of the inmates sitting on the other side of the fence watching. When he started to put the new tire on, he discovered that he had lost the lug nuts. He looked all around the car with no luck and pondered, out loud, "Now what am I going to do?"

To which the inmate replied, "Why don't you take one nut off each of the other 3 tires to hold that one on until you get to a garage?"

The man said, "That's a great idea, I thought you were supposed to be crazy."

The man said, "I AM crazy, but I'm not stupid."
