“You all have obsessions,” the psychologist observed.
To the first mother, Mary, he said: “You are obsessed with eating. You’ve even named your daughter Candy.”
He turned to the second Mum, Ann: “Your obsession is with money. It manifests itself in your children’s names, Penny, Goldie and Frank.”
He turned to the third Mum, Joyce: “Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your children’s names: Brandy and Sherry. You even called the cat, “Whisky”.
He then turned to the fourth Mum June: “Your obsession is with flowers. Your girls are called Rose, Daphne & Poppy.”
At this point, the fifth mother, Kathy, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered: “Come on, Dick, this guy has no idea what he’s talking about.
Let’s pick up Fanny and Willy and go home.”
