Southern University Psychology
At a southern university, students in the
psychology program were attending their
first class on emotional extremes.
“Just to establish some parameters,”
said the professor to the student from
Arkansas, “what is the opposite of joy?”
“Sadness,” said the student.
“And the opposite of depression?”
he asked of the young lady from Oklahoma.
“Elation,” she said.
“And you sir,” he said to the young man
“what about the opposite of woe?”
The Texan replied, “Sir, I believe that
would be ‘giddy up’ “.
