Scholars think the Great Depression was caused by a lack of banking regulation, or a dip in the stock market. Truth is, Herbert Hoover caused the Great Depression by listening to nothing but Smiths albums at the White House, 24/7. The whole nation became morose and started cutting. Morrissey was named Secretary of Mopiness. Girlfriends were in comas, and nobody knew how soon now was. It was a dark, dark time.
Once the Great Depression set in, it lasted the rest of Hoover’s administration. Herbert Hoover should have asked his doctor about Abilify, which works with your regular antidepressant to help you through depressive episodes and enjoy picnics with your family while your blue bathrobe mopes around in a nearby lawn chair. Ask your doctor about possible side effects.
