My 24 year old Brother is very, very funny. He happens to have Downs Syndrome. I think he would do very well as a stand up comedian, although I do often tend to laugh AT him as well as with him.
Another quote from Brother
..if he was allowed brother would be very likely to drown himself in diet coke. His eyes light up when he see’s it and he can drink fizzy stuffs faster than anyone else I have ever met, ever. Over Christmas my parentals were on a dedicated mission to stop him drinking it at all hours of his waking day, including before breakfast. – As further clarification my Brother dearest is dead set in his idea that the bands he likes are his personal friends. To him, the artists residing within his beloved MP3 are real and talk to him, often springing to his defense every time he is in the slightest bit of trouble.
Brother (slyly)…I had coke for breakfast this morning!!
My Dad (with no small amount of defeat in his voice) and do you think that was a good idea?
Brother…Well, I know that all the rockstars have coke before breakfast.
Me. Yes, Brother, they probably do!! (giggles)
(Dad shoots me a shut-up type death glare and begins to lecture brother on his coke consumption for about twenty light years)
