Some psychiatry students from all over the country were attending a class on emotional extremes.
To start the class, the professor asked a student from Iowa, "What is the opposite of joy?"
Without hesitation, the student said, "Sorrow."
The professor then asked a student from Michigan, "What is the opposite of sadness?"
"Elation," she answered.
Then the professor turned to a student from Texas, "And what is the opposite of woe?"
The Texan thought for a minute, and replied, "I believe that would be giddy-up."
