New York - While ADD remains prevalent, scientists have unearthed a new disorder called PHADD (pseudo hyperactivity attention deficit disorder), also commonly referred to as "fad", which afflicts more than half of clinically obnoxious people. Scientists warn however PHADD should not be mistaken for ADD, although many of the symptoms appear to be the same.

Our investigative team wanted to know more about this disorder. What distinguishes a fad Disorder oriented person from a person with ADD? We decided to talk to the experts.

Psychologist Dr. Phil states, "Pseudo Hyperactivity Attention Deficit Disorder runs rampant throughout our country. Millions of infants, kids, teens, and even adults pretend to have ADD, in some cases for attention, sometimes to weasel out of things, and in other cases because they are simply annoying. There are a few scientific distinctions. People with ADD are genuinely distracted, forgetful, disorganized, and for the most part wired to the extreme. PHADD victims only display the characteristics when it is convenient for them, which aids in diagnosing this devastating disorder."

But scientists also created a pharmaceutical drug to cure PHADD named Getridahim, (not to be confused with Ritalin). Doctors around the country are now proscribing Getridahim to PHAD Disorder patients to help alleviate this perpetual tendency to be the most annoying person in attempting to appear to have uncontrollable ADD. With this drug, PHADD is contained and the truly bland personality can finally shine through.

Working parents especially benefit from Getridahim. Their excessively hyper to the point of violent children can now be medicated without hesitation. Furthermore, with this new drug, parents aren't even held accountable for their kids' mania; they can continue to work full time and keep the exhausted nanny.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
