Crippen receives a well deserved honour?! / 5 August 2010

Back from a three week break which has included a visit to Belfast's Disability Arts Forum (of which, more to follow) Crippen resumes his blog with news from the West country.

 I've had what some would ironically call a well deserved acolade!

Having recently moved into a new, purpose built set of offices, Disability Cornwall agreed to hold a competition to decide what to call their all singing, all dancing suite of accessible toilets and changing rooms.

Care to guess what they came up with?

Yep, you've guessed it. 'The Crippen Rooms'!

The puns and funny comments may now start ...

PS. Jane and her colleagues have very kindly framed about a dozen of my cartoons which are now on display throughout the centre. They also asked me to create a giant cartoon banner for them which is now hanging over the main entrance. Call in if you're passing, they'd love to see you.

Does it have a water jet to wash bums? I used my friend Pablos accesible toilet and pressed the bum cleaning button by mistake instead of the flush and got an unexpected face & hair wash. LOL

Oh no, the puns I could make. What could I do in a Crippen? Let's just leave it at that... Congrats, I guess.

So, in fact we should rename it the Lupton and not the Loo. There is the ultimate win!

The real question is who will perform the opening ceremony? I do hope you get a high class celebrity to cut the ribbon. You should aim high on this one (get it??). Dont settle for some B-list has been.
