normality training cartoon

Normality Training cartoon by Crippen. Please click on the image to see enlarged cartoon with text description.

A woman with no visible impairment - we are perhaps to assume she does not have any disability - is frowning and waving a hand at a sign which reads 'Normality training: How to stop upsetting people by looking disabled.' A woman carrying a crutch and a man wearing dark glasses and carrying a white cane respond to the frowning woman by saying: 'Be normal - but what makes you think we'd want to lower our standards.'
