Group therapy

A psychiatrist decided to take his group session patients to a baseball game, so he coached them carefully how to respond to his instructions. When the day of the game arrived, everything seemed to be going well. The national anthem started, the doctor said, "Up, Nuts!" and the patients instantly jumped to their feet. After the anthem ended he said, "Down, Nuts!" and they immediately sat down. And after a home run was hit he said, "Cheer, Nuts!" and they broke out into loud applause and cheers.

Everything was going so well, in fact, that the doctor left to get a beer and a hot dog, leaving his assistant in charge.

He returned to find a riot.

He flailed his way through it, finally finding his assistant and asking, "What happened?"

"Well, everything was going just fine until this guy walked by, yelling 'Peanuts!'"
