  • A nursery rhyme from the American Psychiatric Society: Monday's kid is passive-aggressive / Tuesday's kid is compulsive-obsessive / Wednesday's kid is hypochondriacal / Thursday's kid is just plain maniacal / Friday's kid is anal-retentive / Saturday's kid is too non-attentive / But the kid who's born on the Sabbath day / defies diagnosis in every way.
