Caption: Our heroine, suffering from an acutely painful tonsil infection, finds herself praying! Will desperation turn this agnostic Taoist into a catholic? Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name, bla bla bla etc. God grant me health! God grant me health! ... A few days and several doses of Amoxicillin later ... Gosh! My health is returning! Maybe God answered my prayers!! Maybe I should become a nun or something to show my gratitude. Of course, if there really is a patriarchal capital-G-God up there ... who hears prayers and consciously guides every aspect of our lives.... Then he made me sick in the first place! What a sadistic jerk!! And so, Nina remains an agnostic Taoist... Until the next time she's desperate.

Caption: You're so negative! You don't understand my anger and bitterness reflect a strong positive attitude! My depression is merely a by-product of my unceasing struggle to effect positive change - a struggle borne of persistent optimism! My willingness to express disappointment suggests an enthusiasm to embrace the grieving process so that I might optimistically continue to work for my dreams! What's really negative is such resignation toward the state of the world that one no longer feels motivated to change it or oneself in any meaningful way, but rather to condemn and censure those who are trying. SCOWL AMERICA!!

Caption: "Comedy isn't Funny." Humor is very important. Humor is funny because it shows us a new perspective. While Freud dismissed humor as displaced hostility, humor analysts now understand humor's role in education, health, and business. Humor stimulates effective problem-solving, and research shows that workplace humor increases productivity! Yes, we should all learn the lessons of humor. Splat! Very funny. A message from the American Humor Council.

Caption: Poem. If you look around intense, you'll see stuff that don't make sense …. Triatheletes who like to smoke; herbalists on Diet Coke …. Ecology freaks driving cars; health nuts eating candy bars …. Yoga students taking dope; zen monks watching daytime soaps .... Macrobiotics munching cake; total vegans eating steak?! ... Don't freak out, it's not a crisis; even the virtuous have their vices.
