A hospital psychologist decided to take his mental patients to a baseball game. He coached his patients with simple cues to avoid unwanted anxiety and social awkwardness.
When the day of the game arrived, everything seemed to be going well.
As the national anthem started, the doctor yelled, "Up, nuts!" The inmates stood up.
After the anthem, he yelled, "Down, nuts!" They all sat.
After a home run, he yelled, "Cheer, nuts!" They all broke into applause.
Since everything was going smoothly, he left his assistant in charge while he ran to the restroom.
When he returned, there was a riot in progress. "What happened?" he asked his assistant.
"Everything was fine until some guy showed up selling peanuts!"
