I.E.D. Impatient Eruptive Drivers

"If we've got a name for it, we'll administer a drug for it."

The Harpoville Post reports of a new study that concludes that road rage may be caused by Intermittent Explosive Disorder or IED. Road Rage is no stranger to anyone who drivers, walks, bikes or just hangs around in today's big city traffic. Road Rage used to be only elicited by macho males 18 to 40 who drove fast cars or big trucks and worked with his hands but, today that isn't the case. Now anyone with a morgage and a minivan on the road flicks the finger for just about any old reason.

The Harpoville Post spoke to doctor Arnold Hairington who told us, "IED or Road Rage as you call it isn't just a modern day disorder we think it has been ingrained in society for thousands of years. In Roman times the charioteers would give each other the finger then shortly after that the sword as they would make their way through the streets of Rome and Pompeii. Now everyone on the road has to feel so special that they actually believe that the traffic is bad just to get back at them. With the term IED we now have a label we can attach to these people that suffer from this disorder and treat them appropriately. We now fell that by administering a large amount of antidepressiants and an extra large dose of electro shock therapy, we will be able to cure these impatient imbecile drivers of their IED. But, failing that we'll just return to the old cure of a cattle prod to the testicles."
