Link Love Friday (6)

When I first stumbled across The Main Meal's Youtube channel, I could not help but laugh. Guy Francis, as his real name is, does 'Tourette's Karaoke', singing songs while letting his tics get the best of him. This was one of the first videos I saw of him, and needless to say, if you are in a work environment right now or are sensitive when it comes to swearing, do not click play:

Lately, Guy has been doing some more serious videos. He's still ticing away, but answering questions any viewers might have about the Tourette's and Asperger's syndrom from which he suffers, and if you try to not listen to all the swearing and not look at the movements, he's actually a real funny guy who is making the most of a rather poo situation.

Here he is talking about his tic cycles:

And here is THE question: can you still have sex when you've got Tourettes or do the tics get in the way of it all?

I think Guy is doing a wonderful job in being open and honest about his syndroms, and has a great sense of humour about it as well. I hope he keeps up the videos not only for entertainment value, but also to make people understand what his tics are all about.
