Christmas Carols for the DSM-IV

I know this joke is in poor taste, but considering recent events, I think I am the right person to tell it to you. But I am putting it below the fold so you have to work for it before you scold me for having bad taste;

Schizophrenia — Do You Hear What I Hear?

Multiple Personality Disorder — We Three Kings Disoriented Are

Dementia — I Think I’ll be Home for Christmas

Narcissistic — Hark the Herald Angels Sing About Me

Manic — Deck the Halls and Walls and House and Lawn and Streets and Stores and Office and Town and Cars and Busses and Trucks and Trees and…..

Paranoid — Santa Claus is Coming to Town to Get Me

Borderline Personality Disorder — Thoughts of Roasting on an Open Fire

Passive-Aggressive Personality Disorder — You Better Watch Out, I’m Gonna Cry, I’m Gonna Pout, Maybe I’ll Tell You Why

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder — Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Ji ngle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle,Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle …

    Very funny! A little humor can make a bad situation feel better. This post cheered me up. I get the title for the manic song. It’s like an inside joke.

    The manic song reminds me of when I first found out I was BP and the meds hadn’t kicked in yet. I immediately manically bought 15 books on bipolar disorder.

    Hmm, I guess you’re immune from criticism over taste: I hope we are for laughing so loudly.

    Anyway, it’s two hours to Chrsitmas, so I’m off to bed to see what Santa puts under my Christmas tree. Actually, it’s a banana plant, so he might be a bit confused.

    Merry Christmas, folks!

    seasonal affective disorder: I’m dreading this here white Christmas

    and

    plain old depression: You’re a dour one, Mr Grinch

    though there are probably better ones. Fortunately, the miracle of meds has released me from both afflictions.

    Taste is irrelevant, once you’re “in the club”, you can tell this kind of joke.

    JPS: “…when I first found out I was BP and the meds hadn’t kicked in yet. I immediately manically bought 15 books on bipolar disorder.”

    LOL! Did you read them all that first week? ;-)
