In a minority of cases, the vocalizations can include socially inappropriate words and phrases -- called coprolalia. These outbursts are neither intentional nor purposeful. Involuntary symptoms can include eye blinking, repeated throat clearing or sniffing, arm thrusting, kicking movements, shoulder shrugging or jumping.
These and other symptoms typically appear before the age of 18 and the condition occurs in all ethnic groups with males affected 3 to 4 times more often than females. Although the symptoms of TS vary from person to person and range from very mild to severe, the majority of cases fall into the mild category. Associated conditions can include attentional problems, impulsiveness and learning disabilities.
Still, the tics, facial twitches, grunts and other noises/actions are a troublesome thing and many tourettes are mocked and shamed.
Let me tell your DICKHEAD about TITTYLICKING BITCH Tourette Syndrome:
* Less than 20% of BULLSHIT Tourettes sufferers swear. You can COON blame television, blame TV, for always HORSEFUCKER focusing on the JESUS DONKEY-FUCKING CHRIST bad side of a terrible thing.
* The main symptom of ANN COULTER CUNT BITCH SLUT Tourettes are involuntary m-MOTHERFUCKER-muscle spasms, or JAP "tics" which can range from (whap) head nods, to a small knee SHIT jerk.
* Tourettes is no ARSE-FUCKING BASTARD (cracks knuckles 11 times) laughing matter, it causes children FUCKERS to be bullied at SPIC school for something they cannot control, and it has even caused teenage sufferers to become NIGGER-BAIT manically depressed and commit suicide.
* There is no BOLLOCKS cure, and the DONKEY-PUNCH drugs that are available to "calm" the tics often have adverse BULLSHIT side efects. In fact, I BLOODY QUEEF once took a drug called "hanna perodol" which BALLS caused my entire DAMN IT body to go numb and basically made it worse DELICIOUS CAKE than it is without the FUCKING drug.
I am an active JACK OFF member of a TWAT-SUCKING tourette syndrome association and BOOBS I am making steps towards BASTARD eradicating the public PENIS view of Tourettes as a "JESUS TITTYFUCKING CHRIST swearing" disorder, because it is DOUCHEBAG much much more.
I am sorry HAIL SATAN! for FUCK "hi-jacking" your entry on DICK-SUCKER uncyclopedia, but (twitch) it is stuff like this WOP that really YOUR MOTHER SUCKS COCK IN HELL annoys me. I am working towards CUNT a better future for all TAR BABY tourettes sufferers, and you can do the same by SMEGMA editing this MASTURBATION article. Remember, everything NIGGER here is meant YEAST INFECTION to be funny, and making HOT NUTS fun of a horrible disorder is SCUMBUCKET not funny at all.
Thank you for your KRAUT time.
Best TOWEL HEAD regards,

Tourette Syndrome is one of the most misunderstood of all mental defects. You should keep this in mind next time you make fun of someone for having Tourette Syndrome. It's our own brain, not our own thoughts, that cause us to act in the way that we do. If we could turn Tourette Syndrome off like a light switch, we would have already done so. Most sufferers would give an arm and a leg just to be able to sit still, while at rest, for the rest of our lives. Tourette Syndrome is like having your body stunned with a Stun Gun every moment of the day.
Tourette's was once considered a rare and bizarre syndrome, most often associated with the exclamation of obscene words or socially inappropriate and derogatory remarks (coprolalia). However, this symptom is present in only a small minority of people with Tourette's. Tourette's is no longer considered a rare condition, but it may not always be correctly identified because most cases are classified as mild. Between 1 and 10 children per 1,000 have Tourette's; as many as 10 per 1,000 people may have tic disorders, with the more common tics of eye blinking, coughing, throat clearing, sniffing, and facial movements. People with Tourette's have normal life expectancy and intelligence. The severity of the tics decreases for most children as they pass through adolescence, and extreme Tourette's in adulthood is a rarity.
Tics are sudden, repetitive, stereotyped, nonrhythmic movements (motor tics) and utterances (phonic tics) that involve discrete muscle groups. Motor tics are movement-based tics, while phonic tics are involuntary sounds produced by moving air through the nose, mouth, or throat.
Tourette's is diagnosed when multiple motor tics, and at least one phonic tic, are present for more than a year.
That's Tourette Syndrome for ya.
