(definitely watch the entire episode if possible. "the IT crowd" series 2: episode 1. it kills me.)
despite my protesting against seeing a movie on a friday night, i did see "take me home tonight" in the theater, packed with a body in every seat. i couldn't help but think everyone's eyes or minds are on me whenever a handicap joke was told. this goes for theaters with strangers, tv with friends, comedy shows, anywhere you might find someone poking fun at the disabled. when a joke is unexpectedly told, i just imagine faces of shock or embarrassment, with wide eyes, hands covering mouths. pointing. or the light nudge from person to person in reference to me, in the chair. or the awkward silence because they're afraid to laugh. i'm being a dramatic, but i know we all know the feeling when an "offensive" joke is said about a person's problems/physical appearance/race/religion/etc when that type of person is in the room with you. even though it's not offensive, it's funny.
...but of course i assume their attention is on me. i think about this all the time, but i brought it up to my manly man this time, and surprisingly he's even had these same suspicions as me before. so silly.
the best ever was family guy's willy wonka episode. joe can't go into wonka's factory because it's inaccessible. i can't find a clip, but here is the song for your amusement !
"Chumba Woomba, gobble dee goo, life isn't fair, it's sad but it's true. Chumba Woomba gobble dee gee, when your poor legs are as stiff as a tree. What do you do when you're stuck in a chair? Finding it hard to go up and down stairs. What do you think of the one you call god? Isn't his absence slight-ly-odd? Maybe he's forgotten you!
