The Tourettes Guy is a series of YouTube videos following the eponymous Danny, a foul-tempered and foul-mouthed man with "Tourette's syndrome" - though his behavior is likely more influenced by all the booze he drinks. His friends and family often show up, but aside from his equally foul-mouthed father, they are only heard from offscreen and never seen.For a while, it was believed that Danny had died in a car accident. However, between Christmas 2009 and Christmas 2010, 3 new videos were posted, and his website claimed that he was still alive and had just been in jail the whole time. A fourth new video was posted on Christmas 2012.
The Alcoholic: Danny, who is almost always seen with a beer bottle. The official website claims that his behavior is likely influenced more by his drinking than his Tourette's.
All There in the Manual: The main website has a little more info about Danny and his life, such as pointing out that his behavior is more likely due to his alcoholism than his disorder and explaining his absence as a result of him being in prison for a brief time (this is alluded to in one of the videos but not discussed in depth).
Interviewer: Why did you move here from North Dakota? Danny: My wife was fuckin' everybody in Bismarck. Interviewer: Is that why you two got a divorce back in 1999? Danny: That, and her spaghetti sucked dick.
Danny's Dad: So you wanna talk some shit, huh, baldy? Ha ha ha.
Talking shit about Total around Danny.
Talking about Danny's dick without his permission.
Big Black Women With Big Tits, You Can't Miss 'Em: They get referenced in several videos. In addition to the line from the Gag Dub of The Lion King, Danny thinks "Amazon.com" is the name of a big black woman his son works with, and Danny's dad tries to hit on one at a store (well, her ass was big at least).
Big "NO!": When a grocer tries to take away Danny's marshmallows.
When Danny's son wants to have Danny try some Twizzler's, he does it thrice.
Once was when he attacked the camera and sent it to the bottom of the stairs (and then threw his shoe at it).
Another was when he attacked the camera with a broom trying to hit a bird.
After spilling a year's supply of paper towels on the stairs, first the box hits the camera, then Danny himself stumbles into the camera trying to navigate his way down the stairs around all the paper towel rolls.
Captain Obvious: "Pissing out the window and shitting out the window are two different things!"
Corpsing: The cameraman does this occasionally in response to Danny's outbursts.
On one instance, he actually fell to the floor laughing.
Another instance occurred when Shirlena was discussing her grandpa's worsening Alzheimer's. Usually such a disease is Serious Business, but Shirlena's story was so outrageous that Danny was unable to stop giggling.
On another occasion, the cameraman's laughter caused him to drop Danny's dad while trying to help him up. Cue Chase Scene that ends with the cameraman driving away from Danny's dad as fast as he can.
"Let me tell you about a porcupine's balls! They're small, and they don't give a SHIT!"
"Why don't you make like a banana and shit!"
"That's what happens when Alex Trebek has a picture of a giraffe in his ass during an earthquake!"
Erotic Eating: Strangely invoked - after commenting on a woman described as a lesbian that "that just means she likes what I like", Danny bites into a corn dog.
Even the Subtitler Is Stumped: In "Bird in the House", Danny goes running into the other room after his son tells him there's a bird in the house, yelling some of his usual curses before shouting something unintelligible ("???").
Everything's Worse with Bees: In one episode, Danny gets attacked by a swarm of bees while he's mowing the lawn. He handles it about as well as you'd think.
Freudian Excuse: Considering what his father is like, Danny probably has a pretty good one.
Threats of a Groin Attack also come up on occasion.
Shirlena: (to Danny) I'll kick you in the balls! Danny: (about George W. Bush) I'd like to punch him right in the stupid cock! (punching the air) Shit! Bitch! Danny's dad: If some asshole calls me "mellow yellow", I'm gonna kick 'em right in the cock.
Missing Episode: According to the creators, after Danny goes back to sleep at the end of the M&M video, they assumed he slept until the camera stopped filming and cut out the rest of the footage. Years later they revisited the footage and found a short clip of Danny waking up about an hour later and falling out of his bed trying to touch the M&M.
Mood Whiplash: When Shirlena mishears Danny on what she wants for breakfast:
Shirlena: Danny, what do you want for breakfast?
Danny: Bacon and eggs, dear.
Danny: OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, I SAID BACON AND EGGS!!!
Mooning: "Does this look like the ass of someone who would know if the Jiffy Lube is open on Sundays?" note "Oh HELL no!"
Narm: In-Universe, Danny really tries to pay attention to Shirlena when she's telling him about her grandfather's increasingly severe Alzheimer's, but the details of the story are so outrageous that Danny can't help but corpse.
Nerd Glasses: Danny is almost always bespectacled in this videos, and he has sported a pair of horn rims since his return.
Slapstick: Danny is on the receiving end of a lot physical comedy: his chair falls over, his beer spews foam on him, a bird flies into his face, he bangs his head on a chandelier, he drunkenly falls down stairs, a supermarket cardboard standup falls on him, and more. The cameraman sometimes takes punishment, too.
So Was X: This conversation between Danny's son and Danny's dad:
Unusual Euphemism: He replaces most of his usual profanity with "OH, BOB SAGET!" for one video.
"EAT MY SHORT DICK!"
"Suck my cocks!" Apparently he has more than one.
Verbal Tic: The first two times the phone rings when Danny is rooting around in the fridge, he seems unable to stop himself from saying "Fashion Bug" in response. On the third ring, he seem to have broken the habit, and instead says he'd "like to find the mother fucker who named it Fashion Bug and shove a broom up his ass!"
