As a child and a teenager I never knew anyone with a stutter, so it's a unique experience meeting a student who suffers from the intense type of speech impediment normally reserved for low brow comedy. I can't imagine the frustration the young man must feel since it annoys me when I simply can't think of the right word or it's sitting on the tip of my tongue, let alone being unable to get out a word I already have in mind to say.
Of course being in high school, this poor young man may as well paint an enormous red target on his chest, carry around a neon sign, and pay random people to tease him. When the world of movies makes stuttering ever so funny, it's hard for any of his peers to take him seriously.
One amusing thing is his peers' assessments of the situation.
Peer 1: You watch, he gonna kill everybody in this school.
He's rather mild mannered from what I've seen, so that thought seemed silly enough to make me smile... But you never know...
Peer 2: Naw, he gonna own the Playboy mansion and have loads of girls 'round him!
So it could go either way for our poor stutterer... He could end up going psycho on everyone's ass or he could be a millionaire surrounded by ass.
Either way, "ass" will be involved.
