Yeah, That’s Right! Some Disabled People Really ARE Jerks!

For the six or seven people in this world who have never seen “Lost”, I did not watch it on Thursday like I said I would. I did watch an early episode, and one from a couple of weeks ago, online, and it was just what I suspected, as far as I can see. John Locke is no longer disabled while on the island because this is a place where either everybody’s dreams come true or their problem is fixed. Apparently there is another character who had cancer before the crash. I am sure there is more to it than that, but I did not investigate further on Friday as I was too busy watching Vickie Guerrero on WWE Smackdown! playing the crippled villain character, which, though I enjoy badmouthing her every chance I get, I personally find her more appealing than the “He was disabled but now look what he can do now that his body’s been miraculously fixed!” storyline. It’s about time! I say put John Locke back in a wheelchair and put him back to work.

Wheelchairs as Props in Physical Comedy

by Treadmarkz,

You don’t often see wheelchairs being used as props in physical comedy. Having said that, this video is probably one of the best examples I have seen in a while. It’s from the World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown! The woman in this clip, Vickie Guerrero is not really disabled. It’s all part of the storyline. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but I think wrestling is funny to begin with.
Other than this, the best example I can think of is in Naked Gun when O.J. Simpson’s character rolls down the steps at Anaheim Stadium and gets catapulted over the gate.
