Yes as Doctor Phil would say (if I sold him the catch phrase) and you have to imagine him saying the following with his southern inflections:
"First you get Sad, then you get mad!" "The Madder you Get the stupider you get!"
Relationship scientists have demonstrated that your IQ drops proportionate with increasing negative emotional arousal. "Stupid-Talk" as Dr. Phil would call it (if I was writing for him -lol) is the source of the coercive communication exchange patterns in distressed marriages. Divorce can be predicted, with 95% accuracy based on these negatively emotionalized exchanges.
As for the never being a Canadian part that's just stupid!
P.S. Dr. Phil didn't actually say anything I've said here.....
