Happy that Lady GaGa’s puppies were returned safely, yet disappointed to not see the headline, “Men arrested trying to sell hot dogs.”

CPAC is a hotel ballroom full of loud big mouths running around screaming that society is trying to silence them. CPAC also makes clear that conservatism and white nationalism are now inseparable like an over-lapping Venn diagram.

Earlier today, these same people wheeled in a craven golden image of their orange God, Donald J Trump, to worship.

Hmm

I'm not sure that I want 'unity' with nutty fruit loops at CPAC's hate fest that is not good for democracy.

Strange thoughts: Isn't it kind of pitiful when a little kid with Tourette's Syndrome doesn't yet know any good shocking swear words to shout in class or church, simply because they have not learned any yet? They have an uncontrollable compulsion to shock people, but they can't do it, simply because they don't have the right vocabulary yet? That must be terribly frustrating for them.

Maybe it would be the humane thing to teach them some good ones?

But what if we only taught them a bunch of Elizabethan curses? How funny would that be?

TROLLOP! SLATTERN! STRUMPET! WHORE-MONGER!

or even Shakespearean:

Thy vile canker-blossom’d countenance curdles milk and sours beer.
May thy pigs be set upon by ravens and torne asunder leaving only bespecked bone and curdled fat for which the rats upon to feast!

Language and Speech in Tourette Syndrome: Phenotype and Phenomenology

Ponderer poses a fascinating Zen like ponderable:
What is the sound of a mute Tourette ticing or toking?

There are very interesting swear-arounds for those with linguistic disabilities!
Quote:
One study provided data on coprolalia from 11 different nationalities and found that the coprolalic words or phrases differed by country. Shapiro also noted that patients with TS tend to utilize the most socially unacceptable terms within their own cultural context [27]. Thus, coprolalia seems to be defined by the appreciation and utilization of a sophisticated region- and culture-specific lexicology of meaning and inferred intentionality of speech, phrases and, in some cases, gestures. Jankovic and Fahn reported on a patient who had coprolalia in Spanish at home around her family and coprolalia in English when she was in the hospital [28]. We have cared for a patient with severe mental retardation who was nearly non-verbal but had coprolalia in German (his first language and the primary language of his family). Nearly half of the 15–20 words he was capable of saying were mostly coprolalic in German. Case reports of tics and coprolalia emerging after treatment with neuroleptics has been reported [29]. The same has also been noted for copropraxia.
...

Quote:
Several reports have identified signed tics in people with deafness. Lang et al. [30] reported on a patient who developed tics at 8 years of age, and by 17 years of age she began training to learn sign language, and then began to incorporate tics into her use of sign language. She later developed coprolalia and copropraxia in her signing. This would also occur when she was not talking or thinking about the word or phrase she was signing, and analogously to persons using speech, some of her coprolalic signs after much usage were at times truncated.
...

Quote:
Another report was of a patient who was found to be profoundly deaf at the age of 10 months [33]. At 5 years of age he was first noted to make screeching noises, and repetitively making ‘ppp’ or ‘prrrr’ sounds. He had multiple facial twitches. At 7 years of age he was taught sign language and finger spelling, and psychometric testing found him to have an IQ of 120. At the 20 years of age his tic behavior markedly worsened and his parents felt that he had developed TS. He made frequent loud screeching noises and complex motor movements. It became clear that sign language was an integral part of the expression of his range of tics. He would randomly intersperse obscene signs and finger-spelled obscene words in normal conversation. He repeatedly produced sexual signs when conversing with women


Blind dates can be very unusual, but so can deaf dates.
