Think they’ll figure out how to put a Freudian Slip in a gift bag?

Tchotchke, swag or gift bags; whatever you call them, they’re the heart and soul of conferences.
The best goodies usually come with the highest prices: providing your email address, sitting through a mandatory presentation or completing surveys.
Technical conferences tend to have techie-ish toys: balls that light up, USB ‘things’ and the like. But what about psychiatrists?
The next time you reach for a tissue in the middle of a weepy therapy session, don’t be surprised to see this reminder that depression is nothing to sneeze at. Effexor, an antidepressant, not only provides the tissue, but warns on the dispenser about rare side effects like life-threatening serotonin syndrome, sustained increases in blood pressure and "discontinuation symptoms" when people stop taking the drug.
With all that stuff, is there even room for a slip?
