Southern Psychology

At a southern university, students in the psychology program attend their first class on emotional extremes.

"Just to establish some parameters," says the professor to a student from Arkansas, "what is the opposite of joy?"

"Sadness," says the student.

"And the opposite of depression?" he asks a young lady from Oklahoma.

"Elation," she says.

"And you, sir," he asks a young man from Texas, "what about the opposite of woe?"

The Texan replies, "Sir, I believe that would be 'giddy up.'"
