Hairdressing with Tourette's

A wonderful documentary on the TV the other night about a group of teenage Tourette's sufferers on a trip to Paris to visit the hospital where their illness was first identified and categorised.

Tourette's sufferers are of course well known for their verbal tics and unfortunate habit of shouting out swear words, but by far the funniest moment for the Gnome came not from the barrage of 'fucks' and 'bastards' but from a comment delivered to a hospital professor giving a lecture.

The professor, a middle aged gentleman with what can only be described as a 'Bobby Charlton' haircut, was speaking on the history of the hospital and its link to Georges Albert Eduardo Brutus Gilles de la Tourette when from the back of the room came the damning comment...

'COMB OVER!'
