An Autistic Onion-ite in Afghanistan

Get a load of this video, from The Onion. I’ve never heard of Michael Falk before. I don’t even know if he is genuinely autistic or if he’s an actor. If the latter, then hes’s very good. He’s got all the ASD stuff down:

• No eye contact

• Quirky mannerisms

• Oddly inflected voice

• Literal interpretation of figurative language

• Irrational reliance on logic

Not only does the video show many aspects of the autism spectrum; it’s a hoot! Enjoy!
