The lighter side of Asperger’s

… because sometimes the stuff we do and think is just too damn funny not to share. 😉

(Mr Spock was the archetypical Aspergian, at least on TV…)

One of the lesser-known advantages of having Asperger's is that you can call someone something like "Mr Baculum" and they think they're getting a compliment. 🙂

 Asperger’s Joke (yep, there really are Asperger jokes!): The Balloonist

A guy is flying in a hot air balloon, and he’s lost. He lowers himself over a field and calls to a guy “Can you tell me where I am and where I’m headed?”

“Sure. You’re at 41 degrees 2 minutes and 14 seconds North, 144 degrees 4 minutes and 19 seconds East; you’re at an altitude of 762 metres above sea level, and right now you’re hovering, but you were on a vector of 234 degrees at 12 metres per second.

“Amazing! Thanks! By the way, do you have Asperger’s Syndrome?”

“I do! How did you know that?”

“Because everything you said is true, it’s much more detail than I need, and you told me in a way that’s no use to me at all.”

“Huh. Are you a clinical psychologist?”

“I am, but how the heck did you know that???!!??”

“You don’t know where you are. You don’t know where you’re going. You got where you are by blowing hot air. You put labels on people after asking a few questions, and you’re in exactly the same spot you were 5 minutes ago, but now, somehow, it’s my fault!

  1. hohoho! I recognize me and my as friend here! I am totally with you on your approach to and experience with yoga! I like you, try on different teachers and styles, I often don’t close my eyes, and much more. I recommend anyone to try yoga and reading your good introductions beforehand!

  2. not to say all psychologists are like that, but my mother sent me to one when I was a teen. she didnt understand why I never made friends and didnt want other kids’ company. I saw the psychologist for a few monthes, and she never found out I had asperger syndrome. in one of my many jobs, which I changed as often as a neurotypical switches socks, I met a fellow aspies, and he told me he knew I was an aspie the moment he saw me.
    just shows how great some of those psychologists are. I can often tell a fellow aspie just by that faraway look in the eyes, online, of course. I dont do very well face to face….

  3. How were you all diagnosed with AS? My son (age 5) has had majority of the signs since he was 2. Everyone was telling me he would “grow out of it” but he hasn’t. I just want to know how I can help and get through to him better so that I can be the best mom I can for him..

    • I went to a specialist who was recommended to me by the Asperger’s Society of Ontario. Contact the autism society in your area & see if they can help.

    • Hi Amanda,
      I went to an Aspergers/autism specialist. If you google “autism” and the area/city where you live, you should find an organization that can point you towards getting some assistance!
