If you are obsessive-compulsive, please press 1 repeatedly.

If you are co-dependent, please ask someone near you to press 2.

If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.

If you are paranoid-delusional, we know who you are, where you are and what you want. Just stay on the line until we can come and get you.
