 What Doctors Don't Tell You: DISEASE OF THE WEEK: Step forward, pseudobulbar affect 
There's a disease that is making the rounds of the American media at the moment. The story appears to be contagious, as most newspapers and wire services seem to be catching on to it.

It's pseudobulbar affect, which can cause uncontrollable laughter or crying, often at the most inappropriate moments. It appears to affect people with existing conditions such as Lou Gehrig's disease (huh?), multiple sclerosis and severe brain injuries.

The solution? It's a drug (natch), codenamed AVP-923, which has sorted out Zoot Wilson for one. Zoot would laugh like a lunatic about anything, which really upset his wife who was, frankly, socially embarrassed by his sudden outbursts. Says Zoot: 'I'm just happier. My emotions are more even.' Zoot is so happy, in fact, that he's taken to ballroom dancing.

No, we're not sure if this is genuine, either.
