A noted psychiatrist was a guest at a blonde gathering, and his hostess naturally broached the subject in which the doctor was most at ease.
“Would you mind telling me, doctor,” she asked, “how do you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?”
“That’s easy,” replied he. “You ask them a simple question which they should be able to answer with no trouble.
“What sort of question would you ask, doctor?”
“Well, I might ask him …” Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one? ”
The blonde thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh:
“I would not know what I would like to do.”
“Do you have an example? I must confess, I don’t know much history.”
