It was Saturday night, and my child harem an I were just settling in after a long day of furious love-making, we were, needless to say, exhausted. That's when 4-year-old Timmy suggested that we take the edge off with a movie, before we all began our pre-bed ritual of snorting coke whilst preforming walla-walla sledgehammers. That night's movie was "Autism: the Musical". While it was a brave exploration of children banding together to create a show, I was rather disappointed in the fact that these children (who, may I remind you, are legally sexy), did not canabalize each other during a magnificent mass-orgy that celebrates Aquaman, the god of autism. While the film did show one autistic mating ritual, it simply was not enough. Still, it was a beautiful film. And approximently 2 minutes into the feature, I came so hard and violently that the room was covered in my man-gravy. Timmy, the youngest of us, soon drowned in my baby-batter; and as I clutched his lifeless body, I tilted my head back and screamed to the heavens, cursing fate for wretching this young boy from this world. Finally, I fell into a sobbing heap. "Damn you 'Autism: the Musical'." I whispered over and over. "Damn you..." The musical numbers were pretty good though.
