Anti-depressant drugs will soon be a thing of the past.

In a move that is worrying pharmaceutical companies, many GPs up and down the country have stopped prescribing anti-depressant drugs to patients and have started to prescribe TheSpoof! instead.

Dr. Asha Choo of the Walsall Health Centre near Birmingham, said:

"When a patient with severe depression comes into my surgery, I write a prescription for her to read queen mudder twice daily. For less serious cases, Kent Pete or Gnarly Erik once a day will do. I used to prescribe Monkey Woods but that was withdrawn from the market by the Department of Health after health scares involving patients who couldn't stop laughing."

Government Ministers are excited at the idea of weaning patients of drugs. Junior Minister for Health, Rick Tumb, said:

"This form of medication is by and large safer, cheaper to produce, avoids queues in chemists shops and reduces dependency. I take a stiff Jalapenoman at night before going to bed.

"However, a few of the articles need to carry a warning. You need a strong stomach for some of Noshing Mink's stuff. Also, like anything in life, too much is a bad thing. Excessive doses can lead to spending all day in front of your computer, not getting anything else done and, as happened with the employees addicted to eBay, getting the sack."

Some societies already consider laughter to be a form of medicine. Throughout India, a number of "Laughing Clubs" have been set up, where businessmen congregate faithfully morning and night and laugh loudly to expel contaminants from their body.

The British Medical Association cautioned the public about funny websites. Their spokesperson, Dr. Mick Minsadubble, said:

"While we fully support the good work being done by TheSpoof!, we must warn the public not to visit other so-called satire websites. They don't quite hit the funnybone."
