Temple Grandin/Funny

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Many of Temple's moments where she can't understand figurative language. For example, when she hands a man a piece of paper she got signed that is very filthy:

"Eugh...looks like half the cattle signed it first!"
(cut to Temple imagining a bunch of cows and bulls actually signing a piece of paper on a desk.)
"No sir, cattle can't do that."

    • Temple finding a way to sneak into the cattle ranch, since they don't allow women in. She trades in her girlish car for a truck, buys overalls and T-shirts, and spends an afternoon splattering dirt all over the truck and rolling around in the mud so she'd look dirty. IT WORKS.
    • Temple getting upset over her truck being covered in bull testicles, not because it's disgusting and disturbing but because it's a waste of meat!
    • Temple narrating The Man from U.N.C.L.E. for her blind roommate as the other students shush her, which she also narrates and gets a single kernel of popcorn flicked at her.
    • Animal Husbandry. (Cut to Temple imagining a man marrying a cow)
