A man I know quite well became prone to bouts of deep depression, bordering on suicide. In desperation, he sought the services of a psychologist, telling them: "I seem to see nothing but shadows and darkness everywhere; the world seems so full of anger, horror and evil".
The psychologist told him: "What you need is a really good laugh, to relieve your pent-up tensions and alleviate your negativity. I reccomend you go to the Capitol Theatre, where the world's funniest and most lighthearted clown, Orlando, is performing every night this week. He is a wonderfully skilled entertainer, and your spirits could not fail to be lifted. Go and see Orlando!"
My friend slumped in his chair and sighed. "But Doctor," he said, "I am Orlando."
