The old adage goes: ‘when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.’ We can’t all be dealt four aces, so it’s more how we play our hand than the cards themselves.
A disability is a very general term that is meant to indicate any physical, mental, sensory or cognitive condition that can limit full participation in life. As per the statistics done by the Rick Hansen foundation show, approximately 15 percent of the world, which amounts to 1 billion people, live with some sort of a disability. This group is considered to be the world’s biggest minority group and one that anyone can become a member of at any time. It is estimated that around the world, 40 percent of people know someone with a disability in their immediate circle of friends or family.
So given this giant group of people, it should be no surprise that you have met or seen someone with some form of a disability. But having a disability doesn’t necessarily mean missing out on fun or being depressed, there are still plenty of things to do and a life to live. So here at Providr, we have compiled 25 instances where people with disabilities were able to poke fun at themselves.
1. With a number of people on Tinder these days it is almost essential to have a great bio. A witty, charming, and entertaining bio will not only filter out the ‘bad apples’ but it will also generate some good laughs. You have to be a really special type of person to have such an amazing sense of humor about your disability!
2. Some people just have a good sense of humor. Did he get that tattoo prior to the surgery as a form of instructions for the doctor or did he get it afterward in order to poke fun at himself?
3. In celebration of the upcoming Halloween, this may be one of the very best costumes that I have seen. While some might assume that to be a prop leg it is actually this man’s prosthetic leg. Talk about going all out for a costume!
4. Apparently, this man’s friends and family just love to poke fun at him. Although it is true that all his friends are probably ‘walkers’ let’s hope that they are not all zombies like the t-shirt alludes to.
