Why is the most popular ADHD joke the damn “…SQUIRREL!” one? Don’t get me wrong, it’s not even that it’s inaccurate, exactly (I definitely have “squirrel” moments), but geez.
I enjoy comedy, and I think I’d be pressed to give you a hard line answer to the kind of comedy or humor I enjoy — my tastes are eclectic, and I don’t think I could sum it up entirely in a concise way. But one of the things I enjoy the most is observational humor, because when done right, it makes me feel good — it makes me feel less alone, more seen, and just generally vindicated, you know?
So I thought – ahem, partially because I’m still recovering from the stomach bug — that today would be a short entry, and I would share with you a few of my favorite humorous ADHD posts.*
Also, this Buzzfeed listicle is pretty spot on, I have to say.
Do you have a favorite ADHD meme?
