Crippen looks at a new line in snacks for Disabled people / 8 October 2009

Ha ha ... we've even got our own line in snack foods now!

The last time I was in the DAO office, Jon Pratty, our Manager, asked me if I'd seen the latest in snack foods for Disabled people?

As he had a twinkle in his eye, I gathered that some sort of joke was forthcoming so replied: "OK, I'll buy it. What have you got for me?". And here you have it ... our very own line in crisps!

Apparently they're available in the motorway service stations if ever you're feeling peckish.

What next I wonder, crip-olata sausages? Crip-tique underwear? Come on, I bet you can come up with some more ideas ...

In the 1990s, there was a drama group of women, on the US West Coast, who called themselves Wry Crips. (There has been a cracker in the US called Rye Crisps.)

don't think the fact that Ouch 'broke the story in 2008 should spoil our fun.

As someone with a missing left hand and a shorter forearm I would like;

* a hand-sandwich

* a finger of fudge

* 'palm-a' ham

* and a knuckle of pork

I hate to break it to you, but Ouch told us all about Crips back in their November 2008 podcast :)

What next (or more to the point, also): Jellyatrics.

...it’s a bag of what looks like jelly babies but no upon further inspection the babies are in fact comedy pensioners and they’re called Jellyatrics where do you come up with these bizarre sweets?

How fantastic is that? Brian Bashful, Bill Bird, Frau Zimmer she is on a zimmer frame.

Well I would pay homage to a famous 1970s round biscuit called 'Wagon Wheels' and re-name them 'Wheelchairs Wheels'!
