Scientists To Aussie Bums: Put Up AND Shut Up

A recent University of Melbourne study of new dads who work outside the home while their new mom partners do most all the "housework" and baby care, and who, while taking twice as much leisure time as their partners, still find the time to be critical of the way things are done--it's a demo known colloquially as "Phone's ringin'! Git me a beeah"--shows that the bums are driving their partners into depression.

And surprise, a simple prescription of anti-depressants doesn't solve the underlying causes, but instead often ends up prolonging and deepening the problem.

Sounds like someone needs to start swizzling the poo or get off the pot.
