What is Post-election Selection Trauma?
Post-Election Selection Trauma or PEST for short, is a made up disorder for pompus, self-centered, elitist individuals that can't fathom the fact that they lost an election. It is mainly experienced by liberals and French lovers alike, and was first diagnosed after the 2004 Presidential Election. It's symptoms include but are not limited to: feelings of withdrawal, feelings of isolation, emotional anger and bitterness, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, nightmares, pervasive moodiness including endless sulking, and being excessively worried about the direction of the country.
In otherwords, the diagnosis is "You're a Sore Loser, get over it."
Hippie: "Bob stopped showing up to our drum circle meetings and couldn't eat his organic humus anymore. He's having intense hypno-therapy sessions and electroshock therapy now. His therapist said he is suffering from PEST, Post-Election Selection Trauma."
Normal Person: "What a pussy."
