Parody Ad: FDA Approves Depressant Drug For The Annoyingly Cheerful

This from the humor website The Onion, is too funny for words. According to Onion News Network, the FDA has approved the first "depressant" for the 20 million Americans who are "insufferably cheery."

The first ever prescription depressant hit the shelves today. Approved by the F.D.A. last month, Despondex is intended as a treatment for the insufferably cheery. Tests prove the drug is effective at reducing a range of symptoms, from squealing loudly when a friend calls, to use of the phrase "cool beans", and excessive hugging. Dr. Alman Wei calls the drug a huge step forward in the battle against exuberance.

Thanks to my colleague, Jason Luomo, for passing this along.
