Dyslexic dog



People who are dyslexic are of the round world variety compared to the flat worlders, as Thomas Friedman would put it. I always said dimensional compared to linear thinkers, and that is also an exaggeration since we all are a combination of both and not entirely one or the other. Just like trying to describe someone who is all woman or all man, who would that be Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone?

Dyslexics are better policy makers while the left brainers are better at organizing policies.
Left brainers use straight lines to connect points, something impossible in the real world. A gross example would be a plane trying to get from London to NYC by a straight line, it would always crash, you have to take the short cut which is a curve north over the globe and down.

One in ten of us has some form of dyslexia. Way fewer of us are natural blondes. If we can have blonde jokes we can have lysdexic jokes. It is not not making fun of the handicapped since dyslexia can produce profound advantages in conceptual thinking, engineering and entrepenurial pursuits. Lysdexia is not dain bramage, nor is it manifested by reversing letters in a sentence.

As a blonde I have had people enjoy telling me blonde jokes way more than they needed.

Actually, my dyslexia effects my speech and I have huge problems saying words at times even simple ones such as Ceylon - has been pronounced by me as sirloin, etc but never said Ceylon

Many dyslexia jokes are actually word jokes. In tell them, we are enjoying our language.

Why don't we agree to enjoy our word jokes, but not tell them around anybody who actually suffers from dyslexia? That way we enjoy the best of both worlds.

Dyslexia is concerned with spelling and reading the written word, not misunderstanding the spoken word.

Hmmmm. Dyslexia as she is described medically is about the difficulty of ordering the letters in a word. Though letter substitutions would be included. The way the eye moves is implicated, as a symptom and a means of understanding.

BUT

the dictionary definition doesn't define what comes with dyslexia. Those things are unique to each individual but they are there. My ex-wife had the textual problem, she also found it difficult to pronounce Knarsborough, and Dursley. They represented bogey combination for her. She also was ambidextrous (a clue) and her speech was pretty low on voiced phonemes, probably due to being brought-up with a night-worker dad sleeping in the day, she had to whisper while learning to speak. She misunderstood the connection between reading and speaking, even if she heard it dozens of times. She never reported synaesthesia which is put on the same spectrum by researchers into these things.

Now what caused what and what was inherent is a mystery but like I said - the real problem is a syndrome, each person presents with a subset.

Now how do I e-mail the Dyslexia Society?

No more than a word which rhymes with leftie! So I call our dog Bonzo Ponzo and say my sister in law Monica, I refer to as Monica Ponica - just silly fun really.

We always referred to Chet Atkins as At Chetkins - just games with words. But consider:

I grew up one of the few gentiles in a Jewish neighborhood. I heard jokes about Jews that portrayed them as dishonest, greedy etc.
One of them (involving a Jewish woman, sex and painting the ceiling) is actually funny. But I wouldn't tell it.

These jokes are plays on words, double entendres or whatever you want to call them. If joking about conditions, it's rarely the folks with the conditions that get upset (better word than offended), it's other people getting upset on behalf of them - thanks to Ben Elton for pointing this out!

I find the word offensive to be very upsetting, because folks who say they get offended by something obviously lead very shallow and boring lives, and are most probably trendy lefty pefties.

I agree, Lizzie, but they were more innocent times. We get older and society doesn't seem to be able to stand still either. Some call it progress, but I suspect we lose just as much as we gain, so I see it as no more than change. Time progresses all too obviously, but we just change. However, it's quite true to say, that with the increased communications we have, and the instant availability of such delights as you've posted, nostalgia certainly isn't what it used to be.

But back to 'Singing in the Rain', the point I was trying to make is that the actual laughs are when Eric (hapless doorman, not cop, trapped in place by obligation) gets drenched. They even put canned laughter on to tell everyone, and dumped him in a horse trough at the end to 'underline' the joke, which is the misfortune of Eric's character. Hence, the part of Helen Keller was played by Eric Morecombe.

Yes, I generally prefer subtler and gentler humour too; it's usually funnier, but I don't think the basic principles have changed much. Boundaries have to be pushed and tested though, otherwise they wouldn't exist, and then where would we be?

"I completely agree with you about Eric Morecambe, Lizzie, but just what exactly made you laugh in that video you posted? It's a parody of a well-known scene - what did they change to make it funny? What did they add that wasn't in the original? What makes us laugh at it?"


It's Eric. You always knew what he was going to do....and he always did it...but somehow, he was just absolutely hilarious when he did it....I used to curl up in giggles on the settee, watching them, when I was little...

And the sketch where he used to con Ern out of the money...and the other one with the flea, in the brown paper bag...I'm laughing now, just thinking about them..It took me an AGE to perfect the flea jumping into the brown paper bag...but I got there, eventually.. :0)

Gosh, I so miss them at Christmas time...

Once, almost the entire nation used to tune in to their Christmas show and how we'd all laugh!

Now we get the Dumbed Down Soaps vying with each other for ratings, so we have stories of incest, murder, rape, shouting, screaming...and they wonder why folks in this country are so bloomin' depressed, fed a diet of misery and nastiness all the time?????

Bring back Eric and Ern...If only, eh...

Ooh, look! I've found them with....The Beatles! :0)
