Oh Boy

Dennis Leary just came out with a new book, sensitively titled, Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy, and Stupid.

Now I realize that some of you may be offended by the title, but I understand the need for comedians to push the envelope a bit and I also recognize the fact that scandal sells.

And then there's this part, taken directly from the actual book:

"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."


Who wants to take the over/under on how quickly Jenny McCarthy lays a beatdown on him? I'll expect a comment from her by tomorrow morning.

Feel free to share your comments now.

Funny? An example of truthiness? Hateful, ignorant pap? Signs he may suffer from a disability all his own? Par for the comedian course?

I used to watch his show about firemen on TV (don't want to mention it in case it makes an add for the show pop-up). It is so not even making my Tivo (sp?) list never mind
gracing my bedroom TV during its actual time slot.

Didn't Jenny McCarthy recently claim she cured her son of autism? Or that he's not affected by it anymore? I remember reading something like that recently. I didn't think it was curable.
