By way of Tim Blair, I found the semi-infamous TardBlog (warning: profanity). Yes, I know what you're thinking.
There are two sorts of people in the world: people who like Helen Keller and Dead Baby jokes and those who think the first sort of people are horrible and should be smacked around a bit. I'm in the first camp, though I understand the other view. The stories presented would be awful except that they don't actually make fun of the kids, but rather those who deal with them. Furthermore, realize that for everything you read that makes you think "those poor children; they don't know not to poop in the trash can," etc., realize that non-special ed kids do the same things and worse. For every time you read of a retarded kid throwing a fit, remember that your kid (or, very probably, you) did the same thing and don't have much of an excuse for it. The stories are funny, and they make you realize what teachers go through on a daily basis. Of course, I could still be a horrible person for finding that site funny. Judge for yourself.
