Kid, as blind woman passes by: You know why you should never jump a blind person?
Friend: Why?
Kid: One, they could fight back like Daredevil. Two, it's just cruel. And three, you can't hit 'em in the face 'cause they're used to it. All fallin' down the stairs all the time...

Cashier: Yes, it's in English, but it has subtitles for the disabled.
Chick: So it's for the illiterate or something?

Guy #1: So when I started telling him my feelings on the Iraq war, he rolled over to me in his wheelchair and started cursing me out. He was going on about his time in Vietnam and how there are things about war I'll never understand.
Guy #2: That sucks.
Guy #1: I was like, "Whoa. You're my shrink! I'm paying you to listen to me!"
Guy #2: Seriously.
Guy #1: Well, at least the co-pay was only $15. But anyway, I'm definitely not going back to him.

Girl #1: ...so he'd just sit in the back of the room jerking off and nobody could say anything because he was special.
Girl #2: Let me get this straight: he couldn't control his motorized wheelchair but he could beat off?
Girl #1: Where there's a will there's a way.
