id470-Time for a laugh - with a taster now added

Written by DB   

If you are more than slightly bored with the usual semi-serious stuff on this site,try the BBC Sport Athletics Message Board - go to http// - then click Sport,then Athletics and,then,Five Live - Your say. Finally,scroll up the Discussion column to "Time for a laugh", but don't say I didn't warn you.

There's a mildly irreverent one involving Her Majesty,Ronaldo,Beckham & Rooney but here's an athletics taster :-

Psychological Diagnosis

The psychology instructor was completing her lecture on mental health with an oral test.

Speaking about a special condition,she asked how the students would diagnose a patient who one moment was walking up and down screaming at the top of their voice,and then sitting in a corner weeping uncontrolably the next.

A young man at the back raised his hand - "A javelin coach to Kelly Sotherton?"
