Updated October 01, 2012

Read through a few forum posts and you quickly realize that those with bipolar disorder (manic depression) have a keen appreciation for humor and a sharp sense of the ironic. Laughter is, after all, a great stress release. Thus, we have compiled a list of a few humorous items for those on your shopping list who have this disorder.

1. How to Irritate People

How to Irritate People
Think your BP friend is annoying now? Let him study how to be truly irritating with the masters! This pre-Monty Python video's stars and writers include John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Michael Palin along with others fans of wacky British humor will recognize. One of the funniest videos we've seen - proved by the fact that it is still for sale new when it comes from 1968!

2. "Whatever" Wall Clock

Whatever Clock
Here's how we really feel about time most of the time. If we want to sleep, we want to do it now, whether it's bedtime or not. If we want to wash the car immediately, we don't care if it's 3 a.m. Supposed to be somewhere an hour ago? Whatever!

3. "The World Revolves Around ME" T-Shirt

The World Revolves Around ME T-Shirt
This one speaks for itself. Cotton T-shirt says, "New scientific evidence proves the world does revolve around me" and displays a planetary diagram with "ME" at the center and "The World" as its moon.

4. "Let the Stress Begin" Mug

Ain't it the truth? These days, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn't have a use for this mug reading "Good Morning - Let the Stress Begin"! Ceramic, microwave and dishwasher safe.

5. Bipolar And Proud by Cledus T. Judd
