You Never Saw Frankenstein Depressed Did You?

A procedure that involves drilling two holes into a person's skull and then implanting electrodes in the brain has shown promise in treating individuals who are severely depressed and resistant to other types of treatment.
This study was done in Toronto, Ontario, which puzzles me, since i keep hearing about what a utopian workers' paradise Canada is. How can anybody possibly be depressed there? Maybe it's all those newly arrived depressed American Democrats.

Seems like it would be possible to alter the process into a simplified form of lobotomy. The procedure would probably sell like hotcakes in Hollywood, provided it was pitched as a weight-loss method.

They're probably depressed about living in igloos and having nothing but cold eskimo poon.
