Don’t get us wrong. We hates diabetes. It is a cruel disease that impacts many people across the world. This comic is in no way making fun of diabetes sufferers.
However, we are making huge fun of diabeetus, this hysterical mis-pronunciation of Diabetes spokesperson, Wilford Brimley. Associated with the foundation for decades, Brimley practically yells at the camera telling people to get their diabeetus checked. It’s like the producers of the segment were afraid to correct him. He is, afterall, an actor and should have been directed to stress the “eez” ending that most of us know. Nope. He just did his own damn thing. Even showed up in a 10-gallon hat.
Rest in peace, Mr Brimley. Not now, but when you do actually die.
