In pain and depressed--many are wondering how could these two things go together

HARFOLD, Vt.--Students and adjunct instructors at Harfold State College reacted with disgust to a study released by the University of Calgary which states that painful migraines are linked to a higher chance of depressive episodes. The finding recently appeared in the journal Headache.

"This supposed finding," said adjunct psychology instructor, Hubert Glaisyer, "is so silly on many levels. First, the scientists refer to painful migraines. Hmm, last I checked, all migraines are painful!"

Student Arlena Gilliam shook her head upon hearing the news. "Really? I'd say if you have migraines, you're gonna be depressed. It goes hand in hand. Like, duh?"

"Besides," said Glaisyer, "who has the desire to read Headache? I'd read a boring psychology journal before I picked up that rag.

"I suppose the next study they'll release will claim that laughter is the best medicine."
