Quick Follow-Up

Just wanted to make sure it was clear that I didn’t intend to make light of OCD, which sounds genuinely nightmarish – I was just… bemused by the inappropriately cutesy acronym being used as an explanation for it, which made me think “mumble mumble mrmf mmf hrmm hmm hmm… Obsessive-Compulsive Panda.”
(gratuitous South Park reference)

I’ve just made it worse, haven’t I.

Surreal Quote Of The Day

“[Swedo] suspects that some children are genetically predisposed toward Pandas.”

From an NYT Magazine article about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder possibly arising as a result of “Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated With Streptococcal Infection.”

Gentle readers, please take heed of the potentially tragic consequences of Dopey, Unintentionally Misleading Bad Acronym Straining Syndrome (DUMBASS).
