Parkinson’s Humor at the Supermarket Checkout

If you’re easily offended or overly sensitive about either your Parkinson’s symptoms, or those of a loved one, then I can safely predict that you will find the following video offensive. But watch it anyway, and try your best not to laugh for the next 90 seconds.

It is unfortunate that Parkinson’s Disease takes away our abilities to perform some tasks, and makes us feel more self-conscious in social situations, but don’t let take away your sense of humor. What’s funny about this piece is not the tremors, it is the facial expression of the customers and the awkward situation in which they have been placed. It’s ok to laugh.
