SSTattler: Re-published Saturday, December 27, 2014 Stroke Survivors TattlerPoor Taste Public Service Announcement! Note: The term "no aphasia” but can you find it? 

Have a look at this cartoon. In poor taste, yes. But it manages to raise awareness and it does it in a way that is comically accurate. Here is your quiz: Watch the vid and then do this: Just below the cartoon, highlight the invisible text by right clicking and dragging to the bottom of the post. Therein lies my observation of what the cartoon gets right. If you'd like me to add anything I've missed, put it in the comments or email me.
