Do You Belong in Anger Management Therapy?

Anger is one of the most explosive emotions we humans have in our repertoire of feelings. How we handle anger says a lot about who we are as people.

Do we get mad and basically blow the top of our heads off, yelling and screaming like a banshee* to blow off steam? Or do we hold it inside and let it build up till one day we implode? Yes, I truly believe there are two types of angry people...Explosive and implosive!
It's like in the 2003 Adam Sandler movie "Anger Management," when Dr. Buddy Rydell (played by Jack Nicholson) says:
"Dave, there are two kinds of angry people in this world: explosive and implosive. Explosive, which is the most common, is the type of individual you see screaming at a grocery store cashier for not taking his coupon. Implosive, the least common, is the cashier at the store who remains quiet at his job day after day until he then finally loses it and just shoots everyone in the store. You're the cashier." 
Both types of anger have devastating affects on our mental and physical health. Many atrocities have occurred while in the grips of an angry rage. Therefore, controlling our anger is not just about bringing us peace of mind; it can also have long-lasting health benefits.

Melon-Headed Father

Lobster: You are not like your Melon-Headed Father! You must find your our own Porpoise!

Title: Deep Wisdom
My wife did not get this joke.  Well, not until I told her about the Genus Peponocephala electra also called the Melon-headed Whale. Don't let the term "Whale" throw you off; melon-headed whales are a dolphin species sometimes called by other names like "many-toothed blackfish" and "electra dolphin."

They are usually found in tropical warm-temperate waters throughout the world. My dad lived in Florida so I think the connection to him being a Melon-Head fit well with this cartoon...
