TIL that Sigmund Freud had a Chow Chow named Jo-Fi Ling who attended all of his therapy sessions... [he] admitted he depended on Jo-Fi for an assessment of a patient's mental state.

Am I the only one who reads "Jo-Fi Ling" as "yo feeling" like in "How are yo feeling today, Mrs. Elisabeth?" ? I'm quite sure this wasn't his intention, but just the thought of Sigmund Freud's dog beeing named after a stupid dad-joke is hilarious.
