OCD is a mental disability characterized by involuntary, recurrent, and obsessive thoughts that are quelled by compulsive behaviours. Media and cinematic representations tend to associate humour with OCD, and the unintentional consequence is that actual experiences are downgraded from a serious disability to funny habits that warrant laughter instead of care and understanding. This chapter centres on three analytic discussions with overlapping facets: a critique of the positive perceptions of OCD, an analysis of representations of OCD in popular culture, and a dissection of the particular language those with OCD use and do not use when relating their experiences to others.
