Experimental lolzdog therapy.

Friend of the blog CDP, whose blog now goes by the very clever title (parenthetical), reported that she is feeling the onset of depression. Conventional medical wisdom today agrees that depression has a chemical component, but some radical methods of treatment are using massive dosages of lolz to minimize the symptoms of depression, working under the hypothesis of "What? It couldn't hurt."

The treatment invariably starts with puppies. How can you go wrong with puppies?

Next, how can you go wrong with happy dogs and boogers? The combination alone is without question...

I have been told that it is possible to go wrong with happy dogs and boogers, that it is only because this researcher is in possession of y chromosomes and the emotional age of an adolescent that he finds this particular lolz so HIGH-larious.

Your mileage may vary.

But there is widespread agreement among those in the field that puppies, silly costumes and literary puns together should definitely increase the potency of lolz dog depression therapy.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery for friend of the blog CDP.

Early clinical trials have shown that this is a very effective treatment! I'm going to be laughing at "Puppie Longstocking" all day. Thank you!

Matty you are too kind, too sweet.

And look at how happy CDP is. You are the best. Evah.

Glad to be of service. I'll be even gladder when CDP is back to blogging, as will we all.

Ditto to that, Matty. And I'm still cracking up at Puppie Longstocking.

Those pictures put me into a profound depression. Be careful. Sometimes medicines can counterreact on unsuspecting viewers.

Mike, since you love the music of John Adams and Benjamin Britten while also having kind words to say about Chuck Norris, Monty Hall and roller derby, I have long since stopped trying to guess how you will feel about a thing.

And yet, I love you still.

Speaking of Adams and Britten, we should set up a time for me to get your Adams boxset back to you so I can borrow some Britten.
