A Wonderfool typo of PMS? --Connel MacKenzie 13:26, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

No, PMT is pretty common in the UK. --Enginear 13:59, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Common here in Ireland also, both PMT and PMS are used. --Dmol 20:30, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

PMT

Rfv-sense: Periodic male tension (which itself seems unattestable). Seems to be only in one newspaper article, used humorously. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:12, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Obvious protologism. what do you say to speedying it? --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 05:29, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
There is an odd mention in the Sunday Times: SCIENTISTS claim to have identified a masculine version of the female affliction PMT. Periodic male tension, they say, is rife among us. Alex Smith would probably date his monthly downturn in mood to around about now. Just when the recovery signs were evident, a woeful first-half display allowed St Johnstone a lead that was never reversed.
An article in the Guardian seems to have generated a very small amount of interest. The article says that the presentation was made to the British Psychological Society, and therefore is probably archived by them, though I cannot find the term on their website.
The article also appears on Usenet.
All of these occur in 2004, though, so the term does not seem to satisfy the requirement of citations spanning at least one year. --BB12 (talk) 06:52, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
