‘Ouch’: BBC talk show covers life as a “crip”
May 5, 2010 11:01 AM Subscribe
“Vegetable, Vegetable or Vegetable” is an “intrusive and unpleasant game” featured on Ouch
, the hour-long monthly BBC
talk show on disability. In it, the show’s hosts must figure out a caller’s disability by asking “fiendish” questions, to which the caller may answer only yes or no. (When it’s all over, Daleks holler out the answer.) This is only one of the many scabrous, puckish, and unskittish ways in which Ouch
covers life as a “crip,” a term the show uses unabashedly.
