According to medical practioners and receipts from the Chemist (Drugstore) the use of anti depressants is at its highest level since records began in 1942.
In 1942 they were crude and tasted quite nasty and were normally prescribed for people with war and bombing related anxieties but in the 21st Century, they are mainly prescribed to pets.
"My dog hates November 5th due to the fireworks. He sometimes howls for days on end. We used to stop feeding the dog in October so he was so weak by the time November got here, he hadn't the strength to howl. We thought there would be a better way so we got a prescription for some Valium. Now he is so whacked off his paws he doesn't know what day of the week it is. Before he got addicted to Valium, he knew when the weekend was coming up."

The Spoof were told of one report of a cat that had taken a high dose of some real strong stuff liberating caged birds from a nearby vivisection laboratory. Animal rights activists wre thought not to have been involved.
