Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. One should never joke about mental health, unless that joke is funny.
Should we make mental health jokes? Should we make dark humor, jokes about depression?
Probably not. Let’s do it anyway. I merely wondered because I have made these ecards for people with obsessive compulsive disorder, you see and — well obviously the last thing anyone should do is laugh at one’s own mental health issues. It’s much healthier to have no sense of humor at all. Actually, I was thinking about this the other day when a switch flipped on in my head - fourteen times, off and on, just to be sure - and there it was: why hadn’t I created funny ocd cards yet? Of course, at first I wasn’t sure this was a good idea. Why risk offending a group of people who are really well organized? Still, at least when I receive complaints, they’d have no spelling errors.
Finally it struck me: people with OCD aren’t gonna mess with me. They don’t cause messes at all. Though they might come over and tidy up a bit, in a sort of passive aggressive way. But as logn as my dishes are done, who am I to object?
Note: there are seven spelling errors in the above paragraph. Can you find them all?
