"Having autism makes you awesome!"

At least that is what the autistic platypus puppet told us. 

Quoting this article:

April marks National Autism Awareness Month, and one local group has been working hard over the past few years to ensure children with autism and their families don't get tuned out.

In 2011, Kim Draper and Lynn Sellers, both of Hillsboro, started TASC (The Autism Support Connection), as a way to help families in this area learn more about autism.

In March 2014, the Center for Disease Control reported that one in every 68 children has been diagnosed with autism. [...]

"Having autism makes you awesome," puppeteer Rick Cina said to a platypus who could remember everything he saw Thursday, April 3, during a presentation at The Autism Support Connection (TASC) monthly meeting during Autism Awareness Month at the Free Methodist Church in Hillsboro.

Let's go to the dictionary:

inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear; causing or inducing awe

a pervasive developmental disorder of children, characterized by impaired communication, excessive rigidity, and emotional detachment

Rick, I hate to call you out like this, but unless you were trying to tell us to be afraid of autistic people, you're lying to your platypus when you say Autism is Awesome. If anything, Autism is Awful. For every Rain Man retard who can count cards for you at a casino, there are a thousand drooling, shrieking, autistic monstrosities ruining your day at the beach. And while we are on the subject, here are a few more lies you told your puppets:

1) You lied when you told Henry the Hippo that Herpes makes you Happy.
2) You lied when you told Gary the Gator that Gonorrhea is Grand.
3) You lied when you told Tammy the Titmouse that Tourette's is [fucking cock-sucker!] Terrific.


  1. I was wondering how you were going to make that funny! Great punchline at the end!
