Smart answers

In Kimberley 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 Mark and Smith. 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 Mark to come in for his questioning. When Mark came into the office he was instructed to sit in the seat across from the doctor.

"Mark 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. Do you understand all that you have been told?" said the doctor with a rather sly grin.

Mark nodded and the doctor began to question him. The first question was this. "Mark if I was to poke out one of your eyes what would happen?"

"I would be half blind of course," Mark answered without much thought.

"What would happen if I poked out the other eye?"

"I would be completely blind," said Mark knowing that he had just gotten his freedom. The doctor then sent him outside while he drew up the paperwork and accessed Smith's files.

When Mark got into the waiting room however, he told Smith what the questions would be and what the correct answers were.

The doctor calls in Smith and he followed the same procedure that he had with Mark. "Smith the first question is what would happen if I cut off your ear?"

"I would be blind in one eye," he said remembering what he had been told. This received a perplexed look from the doctor but he just simply asks the other question so that he could figure out what the man was thinking. "Smith, 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 passed.

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