Cartoons have problems too

I found these amusing, if not particularly sensitive. I DO wonder why Wylie Coyote’s OCD is not mentioned.

Here are a few other issues I think worth mentioning. (Note, I have no psychological training, so these are purely a layman’s guesses. Feel free to correct me in the comments.)

  • Bart Simpson’s coulrophobia (fear of clowns), exhibitionism, and possibly, oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
  • Marg Simpson’s pathological gambling
  • Grandpa Simpsons age-related cognitive decline
  • Peter Griffin’s borderline personality disorder
  • Philip J. Fry’s caffeine-related disorder (from the episode when he drinks so much coffee he can slow time)
  • Bender’s kleptomania
  • Dr. Zoidberg’s EDNOSE (eating disorder not otherwise specified)

Naturally, I welcome additions below as well.

Alltop is so funny it can cause oneirophrenia.

Ampersand wearing a fez

Ampersand wearing a fez, by Marc Johns

I think Marc Johns has nailed it. This is exactly the kind of whimsical hat an ampersand would wear. Here are some other suggestions punctuation/headgear combos:

  • colon wearing a bowler hat
  • semi-colon wearing a flat cap
  • question mark wearing a fedora (everyone knows question marks are hipsters)
  • exclamation point wearing a pickelhaube
  • hash tag wearing a Pope hat
  • umlat wearing a miner’s helmet

Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments!
