But suggesting we are prone to visits by ghosts and demons trying to latch onto us because we’re so emotional? That’s a new whopper.

This reminds me, I’m supposed to do a series on the new age perspective on autism. I hope that more of the books and media I have to review are as full of nuggets of comedy gold as this one is, Jaime and I can’t stop laughing.

And for anyone who stumbles across this blog trying to convince me that you or your autistic child had a run-in with a ghost, a demon, an oni, a dybbuk, a preta, a gaki, a zombie, or some other mumbo jumbo, I’ll let Tim Minchin speak for me:

“You show me that it works and how it works
And when I’ve recovered from the shock
I will take a compass and carve ‘Fancy That’ on the side of my cock frock.”
