FTFA: "Stop with the chains!" the voiceover orders. "Take him to Dr Hab's hospital! If he's having mental problems, take him to Dr Hab. He won't chain him, he'll help him."

Ahh, the Crazy Eddy of mental health.

FTFA: Dr Hab is not actually a real psychiatrist. Rather it's the persona of Abdirahman Ali Awale, a nurse who after three months of specialist training from the World Health Organization (WHO), has made it his mission to rescue Somalia's mentally ill. He claims he is able to treat everything from post-natal depression to schizophrenia.

Sigh.

Great. Now I have a house-full of useless hyenas.

My insurance no longer covers hyena therapy; the best I can get is aardwolf treatments.

Facts about the Hyena treatment ...

Being locked in a cage with a hyena doesn't make you better, but you do feel better when it is all over.

In Somalia, Mothers threaten their children by saying "Behave or you get the hyena cage".

Being locked in a cage with a hyena does focus the mind, but not as much as knowing you are to be hanged in the morning.

Your HMO is looking into the cost effectiveness of caged hyenas even as you read this.

The only people who are surprised to learn that Somalia has major mental health issues are currently locked in a cage with a hyena.

You may think that this form of mental health care is medieval and barbaric, but then remember how recently it was that Western medicine resorted to hysterectomies, beatings, electroshock, lobotomies and Scientology to treat the mentally ill.

Speaking of Scientology, John Travolta, Tom Cruise, and Chef from South Park were locked in a cage with a hyena . One of them ate Tom Cruise during the night, but nobody is sure who.

The GOP is opposing locking people in a cage with hyenas because it may lead to gay marriage.

And yet, compared to hyena therapy...

Being chained up with this hyena could actually make things worse!

That'll happen when you take the government out of healthcare.

And everything else...

And replace it with heavily armed lunatics...

A much better treatment is to ignore them and give them access to automatic weapons.

So, this is a story about Hab for humanity?

I'm fairly sure locking sick people in a cage with carnivores would be amusing to me and improve my health.

Next time congress threatens a shut down just throw a large pack of hyenas in there with them and lock the door until they come up with a budget.
