Students in the psychology program at a Southern University were attending their first class on emotional extremes.

"In order to establish some parameters," the professor said to a student from Alabama, "What is the opposite of joy?"

"Sadness," replied the student.

"And what is the opposite of depression?" the professor asked a young lady from Mississippi.

"Elation," she answered.

"And you, young man," he said to a student from Texas, "what about the opposite of woe?"

"Well, sir, I believe that would be 'giddy-up'," the Texan replied.
