Tourette's Syndrome/South Africa
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Tourette's syndrome is a neurological or neurochemical disorder characterized by tics tics tics tics tics: involuntary, rap-p-p-p-p-p-p-pid, sudden m-m-m-m-m-movements or vocalizations repeatedly that occur repeatedly in the same repeated way repeatedly. Multiple motor and vocal tics may include echolalia (the urge to repeat words spoken by someone else words spoken by someone else), palilalia (the urge to repeat words one's own words previously spoken words repeated), lexilalia (the urge to repeat words after reading reading reading) and in a minority of cases, coprolalia (the spontaneous bitch utterance of socially damn objectionable words).
Tourette's is not to be confused with Technologists' Syndrome, a chronic and delusional condition which involves believing that people can fly using gigantic machines, that pictures can be sent through the air from far away and that machines can be taught and programmed to make stupid, ornery mistakes just like people.
edit A TRANSVAAL Polite Note unto the TRANSVAAL Author:
I am TRANSVAAL 17 years old and all of my TRANSVAAL cattle and I have Tourette Syndrome. We do not find thy TRANSVAAL article funny or amusing in any way, and would like it TRANSVAAL removed or changed as soon as TRANSVAAL possible.
Let me tell thee TRANSVAAL about TRANSVAAL Tourette Syndrome:
- Less than 20% of TRANSVAAL Tourrettes sufferers swear. Thou must TRANSVAAL blame newfangled media for always focusing on the TRANSVAAL bad side of a terrible thing.
- The main symptom of TRANSVAAL Tourettes are involuntary muscle spasms, or TRANSVAAL "tics" which can range from head nods, to a small knee TRANSVAAL jerk.
- Tourettes is no TRANSVAAL laughing matter, it causeth children to be bullied at the TRANSVAAL one-room TRANSVAAL schoolhouse for something they cannot control, and it has even caused teenage sufferers to become TRANSVAAL manically depressed and commit suicide.
- There is no TRANSVAAL cure, and the TRANSVAAL snake oil that claims to "calm" the tics often have adverse TRANSVAAL side effects. I once tried a treatment from the local blacksmith which TRANSVAAL caused my entire TRANSVAAL body to go numb and basically made it worse than it is without the supposed TRANSVAAL cure.
- Not to mention, it frightens thy TRANSVAAL horses. Golly gee whillikers!
I am an active TRANSVAAL member of a TRANSVAAL tourette syndrome association and TRANSVAAL I am making steps towards TRANSVAAL eradicating the public TRANSVAAL view of Tourettes as a "swearing" disorder, because it is TRANSVAAL much much more.
I am sorry TRANSVAAL for TRANSVAAL "hi-jacking" thy parchement upon TRANSVAAL uncyclopedia, but it is stuff like this TRANSVAAL that really TRANSVAAL annoys me. I am working towards a better future for all TRANSVAAL tourettes sufferers, and thou must do the same by TRANSVAAL editing this TRANSVAAL article. Remember, everything TRANSVAAL here is meant TRANSVAAL to be funny, and making TRANSVAAL fun of a horrible disorder is TRANSVAAL not funny at all.
Thank you for your TRANSVAAL time.
Best TRANSVAAL regards,
Phillip "TRANSVAAL" Baker
