Denis Leary on Autism
Denis Leary has gotten himself in trouble with the Autism Society of America after an excerpt was released from his new book Why We Suck: A Feel-Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid. Here’s Denis’ take on the topic via Page Six:
“There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can’t compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks . . . to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons. I don’t give a [bleep] what these crackerjack whack jobs tell you – yer kid is NOT autistic. He’s just stupid. Or lazy. Or both.”
Considering I insult Criss Angel any chance I get, it’d be hypocritical of me to fault Denis for making fun of the mentally challenged. In the meantime, he completely redeemed himself, to me anyway, with his following thoughts on Dr. Phil:
“[He says] such thick and exasperating things as, ‘Everybody has their own personal Ground Zero.’ Oh, really? Does that mean someday two large speeding planes will crash into the side of your insipid hairless head? Let’s hope so.”
I’m sorry, but there’s no way I’m following that. Denis Leary, everybody!
