Aspergers is going to be used as a gimmick to target a special intrest group for merchandising?

Whatever .

How can you hate the Teletubbies guts? They have Tvs for guts we ALL love the tv! :?


Screw the Tubbies . I just want to kill Elmo. just because hes a corporate whore.

I definately agree that having an Asperger Teletubby is not going to increase anyone heres "cool" factor.

I've always been a little wary of teletubbies, since I once heard one of the little talking plush toys (I think it was the red one) saying something that I probably shouldn't repeat here. In rapid succession, it repeated three times a derogatory word used in describing homosexuals...or english cigarettes. It said other things that were unintelligible, but that particular phrase was loud and clear.

I looked up some info regarding the word you thought you heard - it's actually more like "padjit, padjit," and is Mandarin for "faster, faster!"

Autism Speaks.... isn't that the organization that's trying to find the cure for Asperger's? I'm just wondering... Has there ever been a case where they claim that Asperger's was cured in an individual?
