A battle brewing over Napoleon Dynamite

August 8, 2009 at 11:08 am | | literature, science community

I was scanning NCBI ROFL the other day and I came across this little gem of a comment:

Napoleon Dynamite Has Asperger’s? Gosh, It’s Called Cultural Competence, You Freakin’ Idiots

Acad Psychiatry 31:248, May-June 2007
doi: 10.1176/appi.ap.31.3.248

This guy is angry. But wait, there’s more! Here is another comment on the offending paper:

Ligers Lived
Acad Psychiatry 31:247, May-June 2007
doi: 10.1176/appi.ap.31.3.247

So what’s all the commotion all about? Here’s the offending paper on PubMed, but I haven’t been able to download the original yet.

Sounds like a hoot.

  1. I loved Napolean Dynamite, the movie. This squabbling makes these scientists like they would have been a good fit as one of the characters in the movie!
