Which got me thinking ....

I've just this morning been watching the 'Inspector Lewis' television series; particularly the episode entitled "Whom The Gods Would Destroy".

"They first make mad," immediately comes to mind (and eventually into the dialogue in that particular episode).

But - "they first make happy" has more than a certain plausibility to it, doesn't it; gives that knife going in a real twist ....
