Are you a developer? Testing framework got you down?

Have you had:

* Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making
* Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings?
* Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness and/or pessimism?
* Irritability or restlessness?
* Sudden loss of bowel control?

You may be suffering from your unit testing framework. AffirmIt! has
been clinically proven[1] to reduce the symptoms of traditional unit
testing frameworks. Feel good again. AffirmIt!

[1] On lab rats[2]. All frameworks have side effects[3]. Some side
effects of AffirmIt! include: sudden, uncontrollable urges to prance,
euphoria, a reckless pursuit of gratification (high-risk business
investments, fast driving), sudden loss of bowel control, kidney
failure, hyperventilation, and death. Contact your project manager if
these symptoms are bothersome or become worse.

[2] Oh, and no rats were harmed during testing. In fact, many of them
were so encouraged that they gave up coding altogether and went on to
star in such movies as Ratatouille, and, well, other movies with rats in
them. Except for one rat, which we fed to the boa, but hey, boas gotta
eat, and anyway, that rat just kept prattling on about SDLC design
documentation, and never got around to coding anyway.

[3] Except in Haskell
