The Onion pokes fun at psychopharmaceuticals. Made me laugh.
Update: Baseball Osama? A definite giggle.

Hylton (Corante publisher passed this on to me)--Pretty funny
You've probably seen those ubiquitous Zoloft commercials -- where
the little ovoid creature is incredibly sad and depressed (
http://www.zoloft.com/ ). They're actually incredibly affective
commercials, I think, in part because they do a superb job at
evoking the deep weariness that accompanies depression. Though it's
probably true that antidepressant medication is overprescribed right
now in America, it is nonetheless a crucial way for depressed people
to get help. Real, serious depression is nothing to scoff at.
But still ... when I saw the Zoloft-ad parody that's been making the
rounds online, I couldn't help but giggle my head off
http://www.astonishedhead.com/images/OVOID.swf ). It neatly skewers
the bathetic pseudoscientific illustrations that Zoloft uses in its
ads. Check it out online here!
