    A charity for people with Tourette’s syndrome has asked a comedian to apologise for his award-winning joke made at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.

    Tourettes Action said it was “so disappointed” by Swedish comedian Olaf Falafel’s gag, which won Dave’s “Funniest Joke of The Fringe” prize.

    It said the fact the public voted for the joke showed “how we as a nation deal with people who are different”.

    A comedian said she was “tired” of her condition being used as a punchline.

    Falafel won the award with the gag: “I keep randomly shouting out ‘Broccoli’ and ‘Cauliflower’ – I think I might have florets”.

    So why am I featuring the above BBC  article?

    If the comic actually had tourettes it wouldn’t be a problem.

    I’m wondering about starting a MS jokes for MS people thread.

    What do you think?

    Complete honesty – I’ve only ever written one. I’m not a stand up [literally!] and the gags I do write are written for specific stories.

    Still it might be a bit of fun…….
